Variable: It is hard to answer your question as survival rates or life expectancy after a "moderate stroke" would depend on the underlying cause, the type of stroke, ie embolic, lacunar, hemorrhagic, and the location of the injury. Adjusting your underlying risk factors for stroke and optimizing your medical care are key to lowering your risk for future stroke.
