From Panjim, Goa, India:
My 62 year old father-in-law, who has diabetes, had a stroke which has affected his facial nerve. He has not been able to open his eyes for the last 10 days. Is this curable? What is the recommended course of treatment and the duration?
A facial nerve palsy can occur for several different reasons. The ability to make it better is dependent upon the underlying cause. I would recommend you discuss the cause of your father-in-law's problem with his physician.
