What is average recovery time after surgery for a sub-dural hematoma

I recently had surgery for a sub-dural hematoma. There were two burr hole and a partial craniotomy performed.  What can I anticipate as a recovery time and return to normal activities. I am also a diabetic.

In any surgery and that involving bone the average recovery from pain and inflammation would be betweem 3 to 4 weeks. Full recovery to normal life would be 3 months and physiotherapy is very important. With Diabetes and age the recovery would be little longer. Take care!

I received a subdural heamotoma. Had surgery to correct the bleed. What are the chances that I had a prior bleed that was small and the second bleed made things worse. I had tramua to the head, about 2 months prior to the recent injury.
