Concussion affects on second language?

Character A's native language is Russian, but he learned Japanese in his teens. He's now around his late-twenties and recieves a blow to the head resulting in a concussion and brought into a clinic in Japan.

Would he have any difficulty in speaking Japanese after he wakes up because of the concussion? I know there's disorientation and whatnot with that sort of head trauma, but I wasn't able to find any difinitive answers in regards to the language switch.

Googled variations of: concussion and language, head trauma and speech, bilingual concussion, etc.

Any ideas? Educated guesses welcome, just need to know if it sounds possible/believeable outside my head.
