    Headaches after surgery
    antoon posted:
    I'm a 78 yr old male and had mastoidectomy done on 12/3/2014. Ever since that time I've experienced very serious and debilitating headaches on a non-stop basis. No source has been found for these. I've been on a number of different meds. to alleviate these, to no effect. I'm presently on a regimen of 7.5 mg of Oxycodone 3x daily. Gabapentin300 mg 2x daily and Indomethacin2x daily. These meds. take the edge off my headaches so that I am mostly down to 6-7 on a pain scale. In addition, I'm prone to very loud noises emanating in the top of my skull where my headaches also reside. Going on 2 yrs. with these extreme conditions and hope someone can help
