Hello. What type of stroke? Hemmorhagic? Lacunar? Embolic? Thrombotic? Where is the weakness, face, arm , leg? you need a walker for starters, and physical therapy. You may need a AFO (ankle foot orthotic) if you have lower extremity distal weakness. Get back to me with more information and I will try to give you a better answer. Dr Frank
