Thank you for your question. Although without being able to placing your findings in context with clinical features and the results of other investigation such as hematological, MRI, I can not offer the specific advice & treatment you need. However, I will try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern.

Usually, localized softening of the brain after the depressed, contusion head injuries and due to hemorrhage/inflammation is called Encephalomalacia. After head injury such kind of symptoms like seizures, paralysis may be common due to already damaged part of brain and may remain symptomatic or progress in future. In addition to that, you may also have white matter disease due to micro-vesicular changes. Although any permanent cure can not be assured in such cases, but symptomatic relief, physiotherapy, avoiding any triggering factors and life style modification help you in certain extent. Please arrange an appointment with a neurologist who will evaluate the further prognosis here and can provide you an appropriate treatment. Hope this helps.
