How long does post-traumatic amnesia last?

My friend was in a motorcycle accident 2 weeks ago and was in a coma for 2 days. He has diffuse axonal brain injury and is dealing with post-traumatic amnesia. He has moments where he knows what's going on and moments where he's very confused. He remembers things before the accident but has no short term memory right now. Just looking for some insight into how long this stage has lasted for others. Thank you.

After you got your Brain Injury has anyone found out that you do not have appetite?

Like to the point you don’t eat most of the time?

I my case... My TBI shut off my ability to eat. So I had a feeding tube for almost 7mos. And I lost a massive amount of weight. I’m small to begin with. But I went for 125 to maybe 65 lbs. It’s not healthy. So here I am 7 years post Tbi.... I gain all the weight back and just in the last 6 months I started losing it again. I’m down to 107 lbs and I have NO desire to eat. I have to force myself to eat.

Any suggestion on what could boost up my appetite and help me gain weight. I do not like looking this skinny.

Thank u, everyone for your comments.
