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.
