See a neurologist: Brain surgery is a kind of injury. There can be various effects on your neurologic system. Problems with muscle and limb function are usually on the opposite side of the surgery. You should see a neurologist to clarify the reason. Likely getting rehab therapy could be part of the solution. But you need a diagnosis first if this is a new problem.
