In induced coma. Diagnosed as intracranial hemorrhage. How long will coma last?

My boyfriend has been in an induced coma since 12/27/12 after he was found nonresponsive at his house. They say it was an intracranial hemorrhage and put him in an induced coma. They also said that the right side of his body was unresponsibe when they brought him in. Is there anything you can tell me to help me understand? How long will he be in a coma? What is recovery going to be like? thank you

Thank you for posting your query.

Brain hemorrhage is a serious neurological problem with high morbidity and mortality.

If there is severe brain swelling, patients are maintained in a comatose state (wth medications) to give rest to brain (for a few days).

The recovery depends on the size and location of hemorrhage (bleeding) in the brain.

You can discuss these issues with his doctor.

Best wishes,
