In brief: Depends

Some people may not have any residual deficits if the bleeding is small.
If they have a large bleed affecting their mental status, if they have comorbid conditions, they may have a shorter life span. The question has to be individualized, but difficult to predict accurately.

In brief: Location and size

The location and the size of the intracerebral hemorrhage as well as the interventions done can affect the outcome.
Also the co-morbidities (ie. Other medical problems) will affect longevity. Surgically, these may be removed (depending on location) and the brain pressure may be controlled. Outcome and survival depends on the nature of the collateral damage from the bleed.
