What are chances of recovery of person in coma having suffered brain hemorrhage?

Hi my friend suffers from brain hemorrhage since yesterday morning. He had severe headache followed by water flowing from his eyes & then vomiting. He got unconscious after that. He is in coma since 36 hours. Please tell what are his chances of recovery.

Hello,

There are several factors that may predict recovery rate after brain hemorrhage such as the location and extent of the hemorrhage, the depth of the coma, the previous health issues, availability of treatment options, the age of the patient, etc.

So, it is difficult for me to give you a straight answer, for this may be more appropriate an answer from the treating Doctor.

If no extensive hemorrhage and not a severe coma then there are good chances of recovery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Erion Spaho, Neurologist, Surgical
