What causes posterior cerebral hemorrhage?
it depends upon the extent of the bleeding
Hello and thank you for your question.
Cerebral hemorrhages are very serious. About 50% of people die very soon after a hemorrhage. If people live past the initial few months then there is a good chance of recovery thought the process can take a long time, years.
Recovery depends upon the amount of bleeding, how much damage was done before the bleeding was stopped and the extent of therapy during the recovery period.
If the bleeding was not extensive then full recovery is usually possible. If the bleeding was very extensive or was present for a long time before bleeding was stopped then some recovery is usually possible but there is a likelihood of some residual damage. The type of residual damage depends upon the location of the bleeding, for example, if there was bleeding the speech centers then there may not be full recovery in the ability to speak. If bleeding was in movement centers then there may be residual weakness.
Careful follow up by neurologists and physical therapists gives the best chance for full recovery.
