DIFFUSE AXONAL INJUR: Is a serious brain injury. One might never recover from it. The hemorrhage is just one example of the brain damage. There may be secondary atrophy. You should have extensive therapy and a neurologist followup. I assume you have these all scheduled. Imaging can be done with advanced MRI such as quantitative MRI imaging and also diffusion tensor imaging. I am hopeful your friend will improve. ...Read more

Limited: Surgery removis a small amount of tissue felt responsible for your seizures/ the area can be localized with current tools such as mri, pet scans and direct eeg recording from the brain beneath the skull. In most people the dominant hemisphere of speech is on the left. Removal of the usual temporal lobe area should not affect memory or speech or cause behavioral problems. ...Read more

Brain tissue has sustained a contusion or a severe bruise bad enough to cause bleeding that has extended to the fluid spaces around the brain. This is more severe than a concussion. Some damage to the brain has occurred. The severity of the injury will be evaluated best after the acute injury has resolved. ...Read more
