Thank you for contacting HCM.
Recovery from stroke is a gradual process, and occurs over several months. Good recovery requires physiotherapy and speech therapy and use of medications as advised by the neurologist.
Regarding the loose motions, you could modify his diet. Use more of fibres in the diet. Also, sometimes, fecal impaction may cause loose stools. A rectal examination by a doctor would help. In addition, infections as a cause of loose stools should also be excluded.
Best wishes,
