Hinton Woman Continues Remarkable Recovery From Brain Injury

(WHSV) – A Hinton woman is sharing her story as she continues on the path of recovery from a traumatic brain injury. On May 2, 2022, Jessica Damico fell and hit her head in a workplace accident. She spent the next month in a coma, and now just two months later she is talking and walking on her own.

“That first week where all the brain pressure-related stuff was going on there were parts where they were unsure of Jessica making it through,” said Jason Damico, Jessica’s husband.

Jessica was taken to UVA Medical Center on May 2nd after her fall early that morning. Over the next month, she underwent several procedures while in a coma including a skull surgery and a procedure to remove infections in her head. “It was strokes and possible seizures, and others. She had to learn to do everything over again, walk, talk, and eat,” said Jason. CONTINUE
