had carotid subclavian bypass with stents placed in carotid artery

had carotid subclavian bypass with stents placed in carotid artery from the groin all the way up to my clavicle due to an extensive aorta rescission almost 18 inches long . Since the end of the surgery I've been unable to talk and have the feeling that I need to cough but am not able to. I'm also experiencing excessive shortness of breath when trying to walk and a non characteristic tiredness even when sitting. Surgery was a month ago.

On Dec 17 I had carotid artery stents placed in the left side carotid. Afterward they had trouble keeping my blood pressure up. It is still running lower than normal and I have discontinued use of any BP medications. However yesterday on several occasions and today on several occasions I have experienced severe headaches that stem from the crown of my head and continue to behind my eyes. They last from a few seconds to several minutes The intensity seems to be lessening but they are undoubtedly the worse headache pain I ve ever felt. Any suggestions or should I be worried? I recall something during hosp. discharge about headaches but this seems to be a good bit of time since the procedure.
