HI
AS FAR AS OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE CONCERNED,YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TRY AND AVOID SURGERY AS FAR AS POSSIBLE IF THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION AVAILABLE.
IF SURGERY IS THE ONLY OPTION,THEN HEADACHE WILL NOT POSE ANY THREAT TO SURGERY .
GET MRI BRAIN TO RULE OUT ANY ORGANIC NEUROLOGICAL PATHOLOGY.

hello there
you can have the surgery safely inspite of having the headache but the cause of headache needs to be found out.
chelation therapy has shown good results if you are thinking of avoiding the surgery
