Forehead throbbing after paramedian forehead flap
It's difficult to precisely determine what is the cause for that. One possibility is that this is related to the trigeminal nerve. As the nerve recovers, it can create abnormal innervation, which will lead to an abnormal sensation.
That being said, there is nobody better than your surgeon to counsel you as to why this symptoms is still lingering and options for treatment.
Good luck and I hope you improve soon
