Thank you for your question and photograph and congratulations on your surgery!.  After the stress of any surgery it is common to develop an occasional headache and this can be treated with Tylenol or other anti-inflammatory agent permitted by your surgeon.  Low grade fevers are also common but if you start having them over 101.4 degrees you should contact your surgeon.  Hang in there, things should start turning around for the better shortly
