Constant headache and coughing since small bowel resection: Any help?

Posted by queensmom @queensmom, Dec 29, 2022

Hello,
I have a constant headache and coughing since after my small bowel resection. Is it normal? Does anyone experience headache everyday? Is headache one of the symptoms of NETs ? Any help. ? Thanks

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) Support Group.

I have lung NETs while headaches can be a symptom for me I believe my headaches are a result of my medications. I was told one of the characteristics of the cancer is that typically results in brain tumors.

Having migraines that are off the pain scale is unbearable at times. I’ve never experienced anything like it before. But I take comfort in knowing I’m in good hands and getting the care required to fight off the disease, or at least prolong the inevitable.

I requested a brain scan right before Christmas and was told yesterday I’m clear if any tumors. Knowing that was the best Christmas news I could have.

Now that I know it’s the medication I can refocus on diet snd exercise. This should help control the migraines. Or at least that is want to believe. I get easily fatigued at times so I can’t stray too far from my home. Today my goal will be a 1 mile walk.

I will pray your symptoms are due to your medications. I would keep a log of time, date and severity. Work with your doctors to try and find alternatives. Medical cannabis came up in my group therapy where others recommended it as a way to minimize some of the discomforts you may be experiencing. I’m going to try it for my headaches.

Best of luck
