Thank you for posting your query.
We need to know your MRI brain report after the surgery and radio surgery. If the tumor or surgery has led to brain damage on the right side, that could cause the weakness of left side.

So, if possible, please upload the MRI report.
Improvement would occur with good physiotherapy.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
