Suffered brain hemorrhage. Blood clot in the CT scan. Unconscious, fluctuating blood pressure levels. Suggestions?

hi doctor, actually my grandfather aged around 72 had gone through an accident without any external bleeding .At night he went to bed nicely and was conscious,but in morning we found him inconscious.we hurried to hospital and there we got to know that he had brain hemarrage.According to ct scan blood clott had been formed.he went through surgery and blood clotting had been removed.After surgery he was having some problem of blood pressure fluctuation,but it is stable right now due to heavy dose medicines.He had surgery around 65 hrs back but still he is unconsious.What can we expect at this scenario?

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
I feel sorry for the entire episode.
was his BP high or low to need heavy doses to control?
if it was remaining low, it is not a good sign.
also I need to read the actual scan report to answer more specifically.can you load it here?
due to the damage to the brain due to trauma, one becomes unconscious to avriable levels of coma and for variable periods.
regaining consciousness depends on many factors. and your treating neurosurgeon will be the best person to tell you the prognosis (outcome). you can freeely discuss with him likely outcome.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Take care and please keep me informed of his progress.
Good Luck !
May I request you to rate your experience here before you close.

Dear Friend,

If u cud post CT pics to me via mail , it will help me to guide ui bettr, Generally such patients take time to recover and it depends on extent of damage , Bp fluctuations are common after serious brain injuries so dont worry but what is GCS ask ur neurosurgeon that will determine prognosis and have faith in ur neurosurgeon.
