me this question and I don't know how to answer it. He wanted to
know on the average man. How long will it take to recoup from it. ( Hospital to home) He had it Monday March 19 2012.

Predicting recovery is always difficult, but impossible over the Internet. Your friend's doctor should be able to give some large broad projections based on how severe a stroke he experienced. However, It is difficult to be accurate. This is one of those situations where you really need to deal directly with the doctors taking care of him. Good Luck.
After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
