The immediate outcome

In this video, you see our patient performing the tests post-operatively a few days after the operation.

What do you notice? Are you happy with how he is performing so shortly after the surgery?

What we can observe here is actually a decline of his language scores! However, this is the expected outcome. The brain is still suffering from swellings and other adjustments due to the surgery which impair his performance. Recovering from this can take up to a few months.
