Recovering from pituitary tumor surgery. Still having blood clots in nostrils, headache. Is it normal?

Just checking in about pituirtary tumor surgery. Three and a half weeks now since the op. Still blood and clots in nostrils and an acrid stingy sensation in my sinuses, particularly when I bend over. headaches every day still, but not always at the front of my skull , often at the back. I see my surgeon a week on Monday. Can I wait do you think? Is this normal?

thank you for ur query,
Well headache is not a rare complaint, SO u dont have to get scared so much. since its more than 3 week post - OP, ur headache must have reduce drastically. Overall it shall take some time to recover fully. It will be more of heaviness tht u will be feeling than pain.
The best would be to go for a followup and discuss this issue with ur neurosurgeon. Meanwhile u should continue the medications as it has been advised to you. thank you,
Dr. Manmeet
