Thank you for posting your query.

The findings are suggestive of brain stroke due to lack of blood flow to brain.
Recovery in brain stroke is fast and good, if the treatment is started early.

In his case, regular physiotherapy is important in making his strength recover sooner.

In addition, blood thinners such as aspirin and statins should be used to prevent any recurrence of brain stroke.

Risk factors for causing stroke such as diabetes, high BP or cholesterol and high homocysteine should be looked for and treated if found.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology) XXXXXXX Consultant Neurologist
