About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Aphasia usually refers to the likely outcome of Aphasia. The prognosis of Aphasia may include the duration of Aphasia, chances of complications of Aphasia, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Aphasia, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Aphasia. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
