Thank you for posting your query.
I am not sure whether or not your son was given spinal anaesthesia
. In the case of spinal anesthesia
, there could be a possibility of post-spinal headache
, which is self-limiting in nature and usually subsides with rest, supine position and plenty of fluids.
Infection as a cause has already been excluded.
Another possibility is migraine
flare-up, if he used to get migraines earlier.
As of now, there is no need to worry, and pain-killer medications may be continued.
I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.
