Thank you for posting your query.

The weakness of right hand could be due to minor damage to left side of brain.

Spontaneous recovery of the damaged part of brain would occur over time. This recovery can be faster if you do regular exercises under the guidance of a physiotherapist.

As of now, there is no need to worry.

Best wishes,
