Hello. Thank you for posting.

I'm sorry your sister is so ill. This is not something anyone can predict without having specific details about the cause of the coma, the size of the stroke, the type of stroke, etc.  Things only her doctor can know.  However, in general, if an elderly person slips into a coma after a stroke, it's very concerning as to the prognosis.  You can know more from the doctor(s) who are treating her.
