Hi there
Thanks for the query

From the information that you have provided it seems that you have a fracture of the nasal septum which was taken care of promptly. Headache after such an injury can be due to many reasons. First possibility is infection of the sinuses. Sinuses are cavities in the skull bones. Second possibility can be a growth or hematoma following injury in the nasal area. Hematoma is a swelling consisting of blood.
Third possibility can be a missed fracture of the facial area.
To rule out all the possibilities and to get proper treatment you need to go back to the specialist taking care of the fracture.

Hope I answered your query
