In brief: Variable
Post-traumatic seizures may occur early following a brain injury but may also persist for years.
Persistent recurrent seizures following brain injury are sometimes referred to as "late post-traumatic epilepsy".

In brief: May be permanent
Seizures may have been "triggered" by the head injury.
In that case, you were "on the edge" of a seizure disorder before the injury.
