Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Recurrent sinus surgeries and still no relief needs to be evaluated for treatment failure and supportive work up to find out the other causes for this headache like tension type headaches, migraines etc. Supportive and symptomatic care is all one can offer.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
