The intermediate outcome

In this video, we see Tom perform the same language test as one day post-operatively.

In this video, you see our patient again performing the same language tests. At this point, 1 week has passed since the operation.

What do you notice now? Has his language outcome worsened or improved? Do you notice any changes in the way he communicates, any changes in his appearance?

We can assume that the effects of the surgery such as swelling are not entirely gone. You can tell he is still slower in answering than before the operation. However, notice the big improvement that has happened in just one week!
