What are the effects of transection of the corpus callosum?

Looking for info on the effects of said transection and a comprehensive prognosis for a (then) 9 year old white male with congenital communicating hydrocephalus and a frontal ventricular peritoneal shunt. The transection occured during an operation for the removal of several brain cysts. What are the possible consequences (cognitive, motor, executive function, processing speed and the affective baggage that would surely often come with impairments in any of the aforementioned (not all inclusive) functions? Same questions throughout the lifespan of said white male, now 41.
