Okay so I was watching an old episode of Castle and it was the time when Beckett was shot in the chest and flatlined. Of course her boyfriend doctor saved her life (and then she dumped him, nice eh) and she was back to work a couple months later all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Then of course there’s Grey’s Anatomy when Meredith drowned and was dead for-like-ever and recovered without a hint of brain damage and resumed being a surgeon.
What would the recovery timeline in real life be for such traumas? I can’t imagine someone not having brain damage, months of rehab, etc., let alone going back to work pretty much immediately after such catastrophic events.
