Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You need a second opinion or a second evaluation for your grandfather. Either the hematoma has recurred causing pressure symptoms, or there is an infection, or a mini stroke or even benign intracranial hypertension (BIH). All these can cause neurological symptoms. Of these, BIH can involve multiple cranial nerves and this could be the reason for drooping of mouth and eyes, and weeping eyes etc. In addition, your grandfather could also be having Bell's Plasy.
Please discuss all this with his neurologist, and if need be, take a second opinion. Take care!
