In brief: Yes
More likely than paralysis on the opposite side of the body is weakness or loss of fine finger movement or coordination.
There is always a loss of visual fields on the opposite side. The degree of weakness is related, in part, to the age of the patient. The younger it is done, the less the ultimate weakness seen.
