In brief: Call Doctor

You should call your surgeon asap.
Any time you have surgery and your symptoms seem to be getting worse rather than better, it's a good idea to call your surgeon. It could be normal or it could be a sign of an infection or other problem.

In brief: Contact your doctor

Although the headaches could be due to something as simple as muscle spasm from having your mouth open for the surgery you should contact your oral surgeon and let him/her know.
It could also be a sign of an infection.
