Facial Paralysis

Before 5 months ago I passed through brain stem glioma tumor surgery. After surgery my right eye becomes dry. The eyelid is not blinking. The right part of my mouth is also not opens fully. I can't doing proper work from my right part of my face. The drooling of liquid is too excessive from my right part of my mouth. And u am not able to take any food and liquid. When I search about all these symptoms on the Internet then I seen that the symptoms are too similar to facial paralysis. So my query is that have I suffering from facial paralysis? If yes, then what is the proper treatment for this. Plz help me ASAP.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Yes it could be facial nerve paralysis.
But we need to confirm this.
I would suggest you consult a neurologist in person for further evaluation and management. 
Let him check you and run a few tests, then a treatment can be started.
Best regards.
