Speech control centre ( Broca's area ) is situated on left side of brain, as there is damage on left side so speech is improper. But as clot will disappear and part will healed speech and movement will restored. Time depened on damage area. Hope within a year she will recovered.

Hi,thanks for your query.The recovery in such cases can take months together.The damage to the brain which has occurred due to clot is the reason for this.You do not have any option,just continue the drugs as advised,keep blood pressure and diabetes under control.Time is the only remedy and high degree of patience is required in such cases.bye.
