At five weeks post rhinoplasty surgery, you are still healing and fatigue is not all that uncommon.  Headaches can be from almost anything and you may want to ge that checked out.

Tired with Headaches 5 Weeks After Rhinoplasty



No, it is not normal to feel tired and have headaches 5 weeks after rhinoplasty (unless you were like that before your surgery).  Contact your surgeon for evaluation.  A limited coronal CT scan may be helpful.

Good luck and be well.
