Only time will tell for sure but it is worth the try. Do you know what type of Hibiscus they are? I would start by getting by getting them in sun and make sure they stay moist, but not wet.

When you repotted, were the roots still white/light colored and supple? If that's the case, I'd start at the top and cut off the main stem at 2 inch intervals and see if you hit live tissue. If you do, stop there. If not, keep cutting til you're about 1 inch above the soil and it may come back from the roots.

Sounds like it will be ok .. like Jay said, plenty of sun and on the dry side of moist.
