hi: The success rate of recovery from coma depends on cause of Coma. stroke could be either due to arterial bleed or block. Coma can also arise due to hypoxia or metabolic encephalopathy. It is very difficult to say without seeing the patient. But the clinical scenario that you say looks like that the chance of recovery is very less.
