Can you resume execution after an uncaught exception is picked up by the customized exception handler?

For example, in my error class:

set_exception_handler("userExceptionHandler");

If I have code that throws an exception which is not caught, userExceptionHandler() catches and handles it.  Can I recover from there?

No, if the exception is handled by the global exception handler The script finish after that point. Example:

function myExceptionHandler (Exception $ex) { return true; }
set_exception_handler("myExceptionHandler");
throw new Exception("This should cause a fatal error and this message will be lost");
echo "Test";

'Test' is never printed.
