Dear Ghostgirl01

It is hard for me to say anything without seeing your grandfather. However, I can say that in general patients do well after drainage of bilateral subdural hematomas. If the current cts do not show any persistent  mass effect, then something else may be happening and should be investigated. The way to know if the patient had strokes is by performing an MRI.
