Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern for your father if there is clot inside the brain then this could cause such symptoms that you have described here, but with time and proper treatment the clot would absorbed but the chances of some sequelae would be there, speech therapy can be tried, hope this information helps you have nice day.
