What is your questio: Sorry to hear that, but i dont know what your question is you say he is recovering and left side is weak which is not unusual after stroke he may benefit from physical therapy, discuss with his doctor. I am sorry we can not advice more than that we do not know the details about his other coexisting conditions. Needs to control hi bp, cholestero, sugar if he has diabetes&take meds for secondary preve.

Your Question?: Are you wondering if he will walk again? That depends. His ability to recouperate is based on many factors including his overall health and age. Physical therapy is key though to maximizing any potential recovery.
