Hi, it was good that your father recovered from ALL intially. the development right sided weaknes with left brain hemorrhage needs routine blood investigations like platelet count, abnormal cells in the peripheral smear or bone marrow. The ALL can recur with decreased platelet count with may lead to development of hemorrhage in the brain.u have not mentioned past history of BP or present BP. As he already has a hemorrhage involving whole left brain, neurosurgeon may decide on the possibility of decompression only if his peripheral smear and bone marrow shows no evidence of leukemia.
