Craniotomy/Apasia creating loss of fluency in one language, but not another?

Hello,

Does anyone know of any instances in which different languages (one
learned from infancy and a different one acquired 20 years later) are
somehow "compartmentalized" in the brain, so that one can be
completely restored after severe aphasia (caused by an abscess and two
craniotomies) ... and fluency in the other remains permanently damaged
(after 3 years)?

Are there any Internet sites that I might explore to find information
like this?

Many thanks in advance ...
