A member asked:

In messive barin hemrraige can upper brain stem recover with time passing? age 73 person is in coma blood desolving

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Pressure effects: Bleeding into the brain produces severe pressure effects that can damage the brainstem. The blood itself can dissolve and go away, but the brain damage remains. Some recovery may occur, independent of what happens to the blood. Recovery from coma may be very slow and hard to predict. The primary doctor should be able to help you understand the prognosis.
