In brief: Bruise

Contusion in the brain is our wording for a bruise in the brain.
If she is doing well, she should recover well. Repeated contusions cause permanent brain damage. There is always a future risk of seizures with contusions although seizures are uncommon afterward. Hopefully she will never have another traumatic brain injury.
