How long does it take to recover from a stroke?

There is no simple answer to this question. Just as everybody is affected differently by their stroke, everybody has their own journey of recovery. Some people will make a full recovery and others may not. Most people will experience their fastest period of recovery in the days and weeks immediately after a stroke, and this will be followed by a longer period of slower rehabilitation.
