Tumor removal complications

Hi,
Sorry I did not know which board to put this on.
My partner has just had an operation to remove a stage 2 tumor from his left side frontal lobe. Although he has had this surgery twice before without complication, this one was different. He is currently 2 days post-op and cannot move his right leg at all, very minimal movement in his right arm (can squeeze fingers but not move joints). He says he can feel normally when touched. The doctors are all saying different things. I want to know if it is likely he will recover fully? Also apart from the normal physio/ OT is there anything else that can help such as hypnotherapy etc. Is this common? Will he be ok?
Thanks

Dear tic_12345

The best way to define the prognosis after neurological deficits after surgery is by performing a brain MRI and investigating the diffusion sequence. The diffusion sequence of the MRI will give the information if there was infarct, edema or the deficit is just a result of manipulation of the brain tissue.
