Question by serenity_172006: What percent of brain stem stroke victims survive?
My uncle had a brain stem stroke not long ago. He is doing much better now, but someone told us only 15% of victims actually survive. Is that true??

You’re correct that the prognosis is not very encouraging following brain-stem stroke. But the fact that your uncle is doing much better now is certainly a good indication, since many patients do not improve at all.
Don’t make yourself crazy with the percentages. Just be there for your family.
I wish you and your uncle good luck.
