In brief: Prognosis

A lot depends on what the surgeon recommends.
Not all bleeding requires surgery. Much depends on the severity of the bleeding and the condition of the patient. I would start with: How bad is the injury? What are his chances for a good recovery? What can be done to improve the chances? Good luck.
