Hi Sarala,

The blood clot could have been removed surgically at the time when the incidence occurred in 2010. If the surgical intervention was not done, then it should have been managed medically.

Prompt and immediate medical attention is necessary in this kind of Hemorrhagic stroke. Early intervention prevents motor and sensory disability.

I am sorry, you have not mentioned about his treatment that he underwent in 2010.

In the later periods, regular physiotherapy can help in bringing back the motor ability of a person.

In your father's case, his walking ability can be regained though not to 100%. The blood clot will dissolve in due time. Speech therapy can help him get back his normal speech but the percentage of recovery cannot be commented on and it is individualized.

I hope to have answered your query.
