neurosurgery aftercare or problems

I had surgery in October for acoustic Neuroma, and am recovering.  I am having a CONSTANT headache, pain across the shoulders, dizziness, and VERY fatigued.  Sometimes I dont really want to do anything some days!!  (Doctor says depression is a normal side effect!) I have a metallic taste in the back of my mouth and when I Qtip my ears I often get wetness (slight).  I am wondering if anyone has had the same problems??  I have had a very recent MRI which was "clean", but they now want to do a CT with contrast, possibly suspecting fluid leakage.  From what I have read on here the symptoms seem to follow, but no one really has told us what the treatment entails.  We are in Montana, and the surgery was over 100 miles away.  The travel has been a very inconvenient part of this all.  No specialists close to us!   ANY help or comments would be greatly appreciated.  B&t
