What usually results from having brain surgery?

Depends. Outcomes from brain surgery depend on location of the lesion, how much normal brain tissue will be manipulated or removed, length of surgery, skill of the surgeon. Consequences, or possible risks, can range from no abnormalities, to stroke and death, and everything in between.
