In brief: Neurosurgery

Hopefully the brain surgery you underwent relieved the causes of your pressures.
If the pressure has been relieved and you are doing well there hopefully will be no future issues.

In brief: Recovery

There will be a period of recovery, with or without rehab depending on how the pressure & surgery affected you.
You might need any of various therapies (speech, PT, OT, etc.). Walking is good, if you are able. The trick is to start slow & build, always pushing yourself that little bit extra. Ask you doc if referral to a rehab doc would help (it's likely already in the works if it will). Good luck.
