I wish that I could tell you that all his deficits will resolve, but I cannot. Stroke leaves a patient with devastating symptoms that are usually not reversible. The weakness can be rehabilitated with physical therapy. This is never a lost cause, because even if the motor strength does not improve, good physical therapy will help prevent complete loss of range of motion as well as help to prevent spasticity in the limbs. There is such a thing as speech therapy for stroke victims. This can help assess functioning and create a plan for rehabilitation of speech and voice. Remain hopeful, because there is help out there. Also, your father must maintain contact and follow-up with a good stroke neurologist who can guide him to prevent further recurrence. I hope he improves! Best of health to you both.
