will not open eyes.
Husband had massive stroke rh side. Tpa didn't work. Speech and responses good first day but swelling progressed much faster than normal. At 48 hrs underwent decompression surgery.  Went great. No bleeding. Off propofol 2 days now but still intubated. (5 days since surgery) and he will not or can open his eyes. Still responds to all requests. Is there anything we can do. Itell him its important. He is a 61 yr old cardiac survivor.

Hello, as per the clinical picture he is settling down. As the edema further subsides he will improve. So, wait and watch and don't force him to do things, he will gradually improve. As his stroke is stable now you can be optimistic, just ensure to see he continues with his medications. Good luck.
