Brief Answer:
Post nasal surgery pain

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query
The tissue usually may take up to 6 to 8 weeks for healing. Till that time one has to avoid any further trauma and stress. Please send me the pictures of your nose so that I can suggest you better.
Also send me the pre operative x-ray of the nasal bones.
Follow up with the required information.
Take care
Thanks and regards

I don't have X-rays what they did was a cat scan . I suffered from a concussion to the left side of my head which broke my nose when the door fell/hit me side ways . I want to know why am I getting headaches when I put eyewear on when it hits that callus ?

Trauma face

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.
Any facial trauma involving the nasal bones may be accompanied with septal and sinus injuries. The call us might get infected leading to pain or pain may be due to pressure in nasal bridge when there is frontal sinus injury also.
Please send me the CT pictures and current pictures of your face and nose so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Trauma face

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for the information.

The headache due to prolonged wearing of spectacles may be due to nasal bone injury; however in such cases, I expect you to have some tenderness on that site. It should hurt if you touch the nasal bridge. Incase you don't notice tenderness / doesn't hurt to touch, then the headache is more likely due to other causes like hypertension or refractory errors. All the possible causes need to be ruled out before reaching any diagnosis.
You can attach the pictures using upload option available on this page.

Any further questions are always welcome.
I hope my advise proves useful for you.

Brief Answer:
Nasal trauma

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I was repeatedly asking for the reports to rule out any head injury. You are telling you suffered a concussion. my advise is keepikeeping all things aside, you should get yourself examined by a neurologist. I doubt the headache is due to nasal fracture because it is stress related.

Brief Answer:
Nasal trauma

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Headache can be due to Post concussion syndrome that can occur 3 to 6 months after the injury or it can be due to swelling in the nose. Sir I can suggest you better only if I can see the reports and the condition of swelling.
All the causes have to be ruled out one by one to reach a final diagnosis for headache.
You should get a CT paranasal sinuses done.
I hope my advise proves useful for you.
Take care
