A few facts: This type of stroke is often associated with high blood pressure, and may be accompanied by long term risks of recurrent bleeding if not handled with care, as risk factors must be treated and prevention is critical. Rehab steps such as PT, OT, and speech may be of value.

Depends on location: The size and location of the hemorrhagic stroke will determine the outcome. If is very large and causing pressure on the surrounding brain, it may need to be removed by a neurosurgeon. If it is in an area that controls speech or movement, there will likely be long term deficits. If it is a small bleed, it will likely resorb over time and she may not need surgery.
