My mother, who had a stroke from a blow injury (heavy fall and hit the back of her head) to the lower back of her head before nine months, is still having headaches on physical exertion, especially at work. She is a nurse and occasionally has to help move or lift patients, which always causes her headaches. After resting a few days, she feels fine again. She had done all the required head scans such as CT and MRI, which are normal. Her neurologist does not seem too concerned. She has booked another appointment with her neurologist in a month. She is currently on Aspirin. What could be the cause of her headache after nine months? She also needs a hysterectomy done for her uterine fibroid, which is enlarging. Is it safe for her to go under general anesthesia, considering she still has these headaches?
