9 days post op from transphenoidal resection question
Is it common to continue to have head aches 9 days post op my surgery. I had a 22mm nonfunctioning pituitary tumor removed. I've been having daily head aches on mostly my right tempal area.
Also, has anyone lost there smell following this surgery? I am currently unable to smell anything since my surgery!

Hi, I lost my sense of smell for several months after my last surgery, It did slowly come back, I have headaches too but they are right behind the eyebrows. You should call your surgeon and check in. There might be something else that can done to help.
Good luck

I lost my smell and some sensation in my upper lip (even though it was through my nose) but it was temporary. I would check in with the surgeon just in case.  If the headaches are too intense, this is not right and should be checked for a leak or infection.
