Cardiologist 's  Response

His symptoms could be related to orgasmic headache, which is a rare type of headache. I would recommend trying propranolol to help prevent this type of headache. A new brain MRI is necessary too, in order to exclude any possible tumor recurrences or increased intracranial pressure.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
