Post near death desert damage recovery period

I have all the medicine, mechanics and science of injury and body damage for a character that all most doesn't make it in a desert environment. He is rescued in the nick of time and will survive. Also magical world so I can nudge one or two things to work better. I am looking at clarifying what kind of experiences physical and mental this fella is likely to suffer through during the long healing period by holistic means. Especially during the edge of consciousness stages after the coma.
Beyond the obvious agony that is. He will be recovering from severe extreme dehydration, heat stroke, burns, hunger, weapon injuries, ick a parasite infection and partial blindness to start with; I may get meaner to him. We have a late teen/early adult guy in excellent physical health who was out on his first holy mission; no it did not go well for him, there are just some things you can not prepare for. He will wind up with spiritual and emotional damage as well. So hallucinations? different pain types? Sensory info?
So all those with 1st hand accounts of what sensations you experience and what the mind is like, particularly the weird uncommon stuff, after traumatic injury chime in. Assume limited drug options.
