N.K. Venkataramana, vice-chairman and chief neurosurgeon, BGS Global Hospitals, said that Jyothi Uday’s recovery was a success story as she bounced back in a short span of time despite the “social, emotional and physical trauma” of her attack.

The doctor said it was a challenge to ensure there was no secondary damage to the brain. “Ms. Jyothi’s hand movements have improved and she can grip well. But, she needs more time to recover and improve fine hand skills like using a computer. She can work for a few hours a day. By January 15, we expect her to start walking on her own,” he said.
