Thank you for posting your query.
I am glad to note that your father has been gradually improving after suffering from brain stroke
The key to more improvement is regular physiotherapy
. It may take 1-2 years to see a good benefit from physiotherapy.
Regarding the bent ankle, we need to exclude a contracture or increased spasticity
. Please ask the physiotherapist to evaluate this.
The pain in left hand could be neuropathic and would respond to pregabalin
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
