Hi Gireesh,

Thank you for posting your query.

I would like to know more details, to give a better answer. What is his primary diagnosis? For what problem, was the surgery done? What is the name of the surgery?

In addition, if you have his CT or MRI brain reports, please upload them.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
