Thank you for posting your query.

Brain stroke of the right side leads to paralysis of the left side of body.

The amount of disability and the expected recovery depends on the size and location of the stroke. This is known with the help of MRI brain.

The improvement also depends on any other co-existing illnesses.

Generally older people take longer to recover.

Physiotherapy, good nursing care and regular medications are the keys to good fucntional recovery.

Best wishes,
