Answer
Dear Nishant,

Since after 17 years after your injury you don't have any troubling symptoms, I hope that if you even have had the injury, it's been compensated. However, I would advise you to make sure you pay attention to general measures for better brain health like proper diet, exercise and the like. You might want to read some advice at Brain Fuels, Energy for the Brain and/or Ageless brain and ask me any further questions.
