75 years old, bypass operation done, went into coma. MRI detected stroke, thrombus in brain. History of diabetes. Prognosis?

Hi, My father in law, had a bypass operation about two weeks ago, three days he was good, and then suddenly he went to a comma. Doctors say from his MRI that he had a stroke and thrombus in his brain. He is in ICU now, he is also a diabetic man. Now he is in comma more than 10 days. Is there any hope to wake up?He is about 75 years old.
