The patient is independent, able to get around and take care of himself, so is not in the SEVERE DISABILITY category. The patient is not able to work, but this is not due to his traumatic brain injury. He feels he could work if it were not for the consequences of the leg injury and the aneurysm. Therefore, he should be scored as a GOOD RECOVERY.
There are a number of symptoms that bother him, and they could be related to the traumatic brain injury. This would make him a LOWER GOOD on the GOS-E.
