17 year old Juvenille Nasolphargenyl AngioFibroma
My 17 year old son had a large tumor removed 4 weeks ago.  The tumor was benigin Thank goodness.  It was the size of a large mans fist from his nose to his ear behind his sinuses.  But since surgery he seems to be extremely tired.  He tried to return to school this past week made it about a half day, and than came home and slept till the next morning.  Is this normal?

Also he is having terrible headaches, the doctor says it is probably migraines and does not seem to care...but it is very odd to me that the headaches are on the right side...

Hi!
I am glad to hear that it was a benign tumor. At times after a tumor surgery involving the paranasal sinuses, nose etc, there is leakage of the CSF fluid from the brain. This can cause headaches. Headaches can also be due to blood in sinuses and due to sinusitis. At times there is infection of the meninges (covering) of the brain. Fatigue can even be due to blood loss anemia. Please discuss this with his doctor. Take care!
