Can you tell me more about the meningioma, such as where it was, and how you were after surgery?

How long have you had the face pain,and eye drooping ?

Do you have other medical problems such as diabetes?

I don't think that your pain is from scar tissue, but I am not exactly sure of the source. The tapering of the steroid prednisone may be a culprit, although your dose was modest.

It is probably safe to continue to treat your discomfort with Acetaminophen(Tylenol) or ibuprofen. If your pain does not respond, worsens or your eye drooping becomes worse, I would see your doctor ASAP. Be sure to mention these symptoms at your next visit, no matter what.
