Dear Mr. XXXXXXX ji
I suggest the following to your father.
1. Repeat NCCT HEAD /MRI BRAIN to see if there are any secondary changes in brain like gliosis etc

2. Continue with preventive medications viz. ecosprin /atorvastatin / clopidogrel/ antihypertensives/ antidiabetic medications as advised by doctor (depending on whether it was ischemic/hemorrhagic stroke

3. Continue with physiotherapy & speech therapy

4 at times speech loss is there in left sided brain lesions, then patient needs rehabilitation in the form of sign /gesture languages

5 regular follow up with neurophysician is to be continued
