Upcoming hysterectomy 1/16: pre-op hysterectomy testing - BP concerns

I had my Pre-op bloodwork, EKG and pressure done this past Friday at my PCP. Then I had another appointment this Monday for him to review the results with me and finalize the clearance for the surgery. Well, when he looked at my chart he said my pressure on Friday was 190/90 and when they took it on Monday it was 180/80. I was diagnosed with HBP about 7 years ago but I'm on the mildest dossage of medication. However, ever since being diagnosed, I feel as though I'm taking a test that I HAVE to pass every time my pressure is taken so I get anxious.

Anyway, he had me try to relax and then had the technician take another EKG and when it was done it was 150/80. He did, however give me some samples of another BP med that he wants me to take once a day up to the morning of my surgery next week. He said if they saw my pressure of 190/90 they would cancel the surgery. I just pray my pressure is in an acceptable range on my surgery date.

Slow deep breaths before and while your are having your bp taken do help. It very well might be stress from thinking about surgery. Strangely enough, they told me not to take my bp meds before surgery and my bp was low. It was also low for awhile after the surgery.
