Dear Nitesh Kumar,thanks for posting query.At times in the brain there are areas which are not accessible easily for surgery and there is risk of injury to underlying brain and which can be quite problematic.In such kind of cases doctors take a conservative approach and will like to wait.He is not behaving normal because due to clots in the brain there is pressure on brain.Wait for some time and see how the things progresses,if you are very much apprehensive you can always ask for 2nd opinion from a neurosurgeon.Bye and wishing your father a speedy recovery.
