Hello Dear, From your description I can incur that the swelling is pressing on the brain which is causing his loss of memory and vision problem. It would be better if he undergoes the operation. However I would suggest that you get him operated in a good hospital as these operations are high risk operations. If possible get him to Delhi or Mumbai.
