In brief: Depends
Stroke is classified into many different subtypes.
Some have a much higher mortality rate than others. As an example, patients with a ruptured aneurysm have a higher rate of death than those with a small ischemic stroke. Questions about individual stroke risk should be directed to your physician.

In brief: Depends
That really depends on how severe the stroke is.
If it affects things like your swallowing and you ability to walk so that you are confined to bed, that is much more serious. Most improvement occurs fairly early, so it is ususlly fairly easy to predict the long term outcome. It also depends on what other disease you have, that is how your health was prior to the strokel.
