Headache: My husband, 50 yers old, healthy. He had 6 implants about 2 weeks ago.
He had 4 put in the lower right jaw. He is experiencing a constant moderate to severe headache (temple, eye, sinus) on that side. Does this make sense at this stage in the healing process?
He is taking powerful pain meds to manage the pain. I am aware that the nerve bundle runs in this general area so assumption is that it will get better with time. That is our hope, anyway.
Please advise if this associated pain makes sense. We are very rural/remote and it's approximately 3 hourrs to a major urban area. ...Visitor from ID
Did he have a sinus lift or augmentation done at the same time?
Usually, patients have some tenderness or discomfort that is relieved with pain medication. Most of the pain goes away after the first two days.
I would have the surgeon take another look at him. Don't wait.
