13 stories of people awaking from a coma and discovering weird things.

It's like something out of a soap opera. When people wake up from comas, they sometimes lose memories, abilities or sense — or they struggle to distinguish what's real and what's fake.

A recent Reddit thread asked people who've survived comas to share what surprised them most upon waking from a coma. The answers prove that the human brain is incredibly complex and resilient.

1. This person was surprised they'd lost hearing.

I was in a coma for four days from bacterial meningitis. When I woke up I was completely deaf! I had to communicate with my parents and doctors with a notepad and pen. Some hearing gradually returned in my left ear, but the right ear is still 100% deaf to this day. - austin_cody

2. Learning you can no longer wipe yourself has to be rough.

I was in a coma for close to six weeks. When I woke I had to learn everything again. I had most of my speech abilities, but my motor control was horrid. I had to figure out how to wipe my ass as well as walk up and down stairs again. That took about three weeks.

I had lost a shit ton of weight too. I was 6'3" and weighed about 145. - Ralph-Hinkley
