Doctor: Thanks for consulting ATD.Prediction of prognosis in cerebrovascular accidents (stroke) will depend upon the extent of the area of the brain involved, age of the patient, co-morbid conditions etc. Even with all the available information, prediction will not be 100%. Continue the medication prescribed by your Doctor and if any worsening of symptoms noted, consult immediately. Have a nice day.
