This friend who is a 74-years old man had stroke just recently and now hospitalised. He has left-sided hemiparesis with right facial nerve paralysis and aphasia. He has been in the hospital for 2 days with glasgow coma scale of 9/15. He is hypertensive and diabetic for 10 years. His family members are wondering what are the chances that he can still survive. I am wondering what are the chances of survival for him and if he does, is it still good that he carry out physiotherapy?
