[Serious] People who have woken up from a coma, what was it like being in a coma ?

I was in a medically induced coma for about a week 20 years ago after a serious accident, so I don’t remember much.

Every once in a while I could hear my family talking nearby. For the most part it was me just in a really deep sleep because of the drugs. As they took me off the drugs though, I started to communicate little by little. One time I really had to pee and my mom said there was a tube so I could just go, but I insisted repeatedly that everyone leave the room so I could pee and I really wasn’t sure I should just let loose while in bed until I couldn’t hold it any longer. Apparently I fell asleep right after and my family finally shuffled back in after a while.
