Are you a right? Or left-handed person?

What a question they always ask you before surgery decisions huh , are you a left or right handed person? After surgery in the left temporal lobe, after a lobectomy in it, along with amygdalo-hippocampus; I was a right handed person, maybe i'm even more right handed now? maybe a guess, seems like it, or I don't know. Could trying to use my left hand more now for everything, cause a great new invention in my missing brains areas? hmm.. Writing with my left hand is so much fun! j/k
