Hello, and thank you for sharing your question.

When a person is unconscious for more than 6 hours it is considered being in a state of coma.

The recovery from coma is different depending on the cause.  For example if the coma was caused by drug poisoning the recovery rates are very high.  Comas causes by lack of oxygen are more difficult to recover from.

In any case, negative symptoms after experiencing unconsciousness or coma must be treated by a doctor.
