Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate to note that your father is paralysed after the surgery and convulsions.

It is not common to have seizures (convulsions) and paralysis after surgery. However, in some cases,it may happen.

We need the following information to answer your query better:

1. Where was the tumor located and its size etc- MRI report would tell us all this informaiton.
2. What surgery was done- you mentioned frontal bone, which seems to be incorrect- the discharge summary would mention that.
3. Was there any complication during surgery, such as bleeding at the site of surgery.

Please get back with the details.

Best wishes,
