A recent study claimed that some patients may develop severe headaches after weight related surgery. The surgery went together with a condition described as intracranial hypotension which is low blood pressure around the brain and occurred in a small number of patients. The condition is often associated with headaches while the patient is standing that dissipate once the patient lies down. The headaches often coincide with vomiting, difficulty concentrating, nausea and neck stiffness.
The head of bariatric surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, Dr Mitchell Roslin revealed that the study did not contain enough data to reach a firm conclusion.
