Symptom relief after surgery

I had surgery 10 days ago. When I cough, I still have a cough headache. For those that had tussive headaches before surgery how long after surgery were they gone? Immediately?

  Hi Karen, it may take a while u still have inflammation due to the surgery itself...and lots of healing yet to do.....

This is one thing u cannot rush and try to avoid coughing if at all possible.'

  It takes patience to heal....

Hang in there <3

Hi I am 7 weeks post op and the pressure headaches still come and go, but r getting less. I also still have a lot of swelling. So be patient and don't get discouraged, how to do, I know. But take it easy, u will get better slowly. Hugs,Dana
