Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
You may try encephabol tonic for memory loss,and give fruit juices with additional glucose powder in it-this will enhance brain performance and since 4 months are gone,reassure your child that she would be okay soon.Without neurological deficit in any part of the body,natural course of healing from past concussion is likely

In absence of neurological deficits of the body,mild transient short term memory shouldn't be a long time worry--it will heal in couple of days ,already 4 months have passed,only advise should be to reassure your child that it will be okay soon.Give her multivitamins and liquid encephabol to serve as brain tonic
