Thank you for posting your query.
We need more details to answer your query better. This includes his diagnosis, MRI report and details of surgery performed.
The loss of strength can be due to the disease or the surgery,and it indicates damage to the right half of brain.
We expect gradual recovery of strength and the physiotherapy should be continued at home after discharge too.
Best wishes,
