Lateral Medullary Syndrome

Hi !
My mother is 56 years old and she is diagnosed with Lateral Medullary Syndrome - POCS. She got the Stroke on 2nd june 2009. She was in hospital till 14th july 2009. The feeding tube was removed in end of August. She cannot walk by herself. She still has difficulty eating and specially drinking water.

What are the short term and long term risks she is facing?  Would she be able to walk?  
Please Reply.
Thank You.
