Depending on the location of the stroke in the brain, some people can make an excellent recovery.  However depending on the relative location and size of the dammage any number of results can occur.  Few people who survive a stroke remain unchanged.  Treatments can include: surgical proceedures like coils that can be implanted in the dammaged areas, medications can be taken to control the resulting seizures, a technique called Melodic Intonation Therapy can be used by trained music therapists to actually re-train another part of the brain (the music center) to speak when there is severe aphasia (loss of speech).  The most important thing to anyone in recovery is maintaing a positive outlook and staying surrounded by supportive people.  The greatest gift you can give your close friend might be to support and accept him as he is - rather than look for him as he was.
