Many people recover completely after a stroke. For others, it can take many months to recover from a stroke. Physical therapy and other retraining methods are greatly improving rehabilitation and recovery.
Despite clot-busting medications that help during an ischemic stroke, overall, about 30% of people die from stroke. In general, the more deficits or loss of ability (in walking or talking) individuals have when they arrive in the emergency department, the worse the outcome.
