What is the recovery time fron orbital decompression surgery?

In brief: Depends

Decompression removes tissue and creates openings into sinuses so that the excess orbital tissue will enter these spaces and allow the eye to fall back into normal position.
If the decompression is significant recovery might take 1-2 weeks but could be less with a smaller amount of tissue displacement.
