See your doctor: Persistent headaches after sinus surgery should first be evaluated by your surgeon to make sure you are healing well from surgery and that there is no new infection. If not, your headaches may be from something other than your sinuses. Could be migraines, muscle tension, even TMJ. You may need evaluation by neurology

See ENT doc: See the ENT doc who did your surgery. Sinus surgery is not alwqys successful. Also, ask him if you might have a TMJ problem. If so, see a TMJ expert.
