I had surgery for brain bleed after a bad fall. They said it was a subdural hematoma and inserted a drain. I recovered with rehab but from time to time I have strange feelings in my head even though I function normally. I am a little off balance from time to time. Is this normal and is it ok for me to get my hair permed?

I had brain surgery on December 5 to alleviate trigeminal neuralgia. The operation was a success but I have had excruciating headaches daily since then. At first it was like the top of my head was going to blow off but now the pain is on my right forehead generally in the evenings and during the night. During the day I can go without pain pills but I am averaging two or three daily.fiorecet. Is this a swap for the trigeminal pain or when might this pain cease? The neurosurgeon says I am recovering slowly. He put a rtelfon sponge between my nreve and the bloood vessel.
