Post-Op and an increase in Migraines

Has anyone ever heard of this before?

I just came from my neurologist and she wants me to take an extra week off because I will most likely have an increase in migraines due to the recovery period after my surgery (partial hysterectomy).

Thanks in advance!

  1. Yes, it is not uncommon for patients to experience an increase in migraines during the recovery period after surgery. The stress, hormonal changes, and overall healing process can contribute to this. It's important to follow your neurologist's advice and take the necessary time off for proper recovery.
