Post Craniotomy

Dear Doctor

My friend had a craniotmoy in April this year after doctors found 10 cm clot on his brain.  Is it alright for him to be using a jackhammer to do improvements on his home, or is it too heavy, and are the vibrations too much for him at this stage?

Can you please send the information to back up your answer, as he does not know his limitations.

Thank you

What is your friend's condition at this time? The natural instinct would be to answer that it might be bad for your friend to engage in manual labor, but in reality, it would be difficult to assess whether that activity would be detrimental to his health or not from anyone's perspective except that of his surgeon.  Have him consult his surgeon on what he can and cannot do at this point in time in relation to his previous surgery.
