Welcome to icliniq.com.
Sorry to hear about your nephew.
Due to the tumor for which he was operated, the cerebellum (small brain) was affected. Due to that, he has developed bruxism which is a rare complication.
Unfortunately, there is no effective established recommended treatment. Some have tried different groups of drugs like short course of L-dopa, Bromocriptine, and Baclofen. Out of all these, Baclofen has the least side effects which can be tried. Baclofen can be given as 10 to 15 mg per day in two divided doses.
Let me know if the bruxism is more during daytime or while sleeping.
