tonsil removal cause speech problem

my nephew had his tonsils removed by laser,since then he cant speak properly. he has had a speach therapist for a year no improvement.could something have happened during the surgery and if so how could it be treated? Before the surgey he spoke as a normal 3 year old now he is 4 and you cant understand a word he says. when you try to get him to put his tongue in the proper place to pronounce a word his tongue just kind of flops around like he does not have controll over it  please help.
