What is the prognosis after a brain hemorrhage? Is recovery possible?
Many patients who have experienced a brain hemorrhage do survive. However,
survival rates are decreased when the bleeding occurs in certain areas of the
brain or if the initial bleed was very large.
If a patient survives the initial event of an intracranial hemorrhage, recovery may take many months. Over time and with extensive rehabilitation efforts, including physical, occupational, and speech therapy, patients can regain function. However, some can be left with persistent weakness or sensory problems. Other patients may have residual seizures, headaches, or memory problems.
