Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and they are not suggestive of any serious issue.

The discharge from the incision looks normal and is not suggestive of infection.

Headache can occur after surgeries, especially if done under spinal anaesthesia. It would subside in a few days. As of now, you can take ibuprofen or diclofenac tablets for relief from headache.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
