Now I have blood pressure......

Since I decided to have this surgery, I have had crazy things happen to me. I had a terrible stomach virus, then hemorrids from he**, a steroid pack that made me crazy, got put on thyroid meds and now I have high blood pressure. This week I've had really bad headaches that have put me on the couch all day and that's not me. I'm such a go getter. Last night my dh said what if it is bp? He checked it and it was 160/110. I went to gyn. office for nurse to check it and it was 154/108. Had to see reg. dr. at 4:30 today and it was 160/100. So tomorrow morning I take my first bp meds. Lets hope it will work ok for me. My dad said he took what my dr gave me and it made his heart race so much he had to go to er!! I hope some of you won't mind keeping me in your prayers!! Thanks for listening!

I'm sorry you have developed some health issues since scheduling your surgery. It must be terribly frustrating. I will keep you in my prayers that your meds work and everything goes well for you!

High bp - me, too, all of a sudden. And I will also start bp med tomorrow! Headache? Yup, since last Friday - and I can't remember a headache before that! I go to pulmonary rehab for asthma twice a week - been so tired that I have to kick myself to get there. But I found on Tuesday that after 30 mins on the treadmill, 20 on the Nustep and 10 on the rowing machine, I felt very good. It was temporary, but it sure was nice while it lasted. I hope you find something that brings you relief.

Mine has actually gone down! I've been on BP medicines for the last 8 years and they have basically kept my BP in the high range. Since all this started, my BP has come down and stayed down to the point they have reduced my medicine with no increase in my BP. I've also discontinued the aspirin until after the surgery is over.

When I first started on BP medicine, it made me very sleepy so be careful driving, etc. until you get used to it. The sleepies go away after a couple of weeks.

Now I have blood pressure......

This morning I took my first bp med. As the day went on I got another headache. It got so bad that at 2:00 I went back to dr. He said my bp was 170 over 100. He could either give me a pill that would take 8 hrs to lower it or put me in hosp. to give me a med that would lower it in half an hour but it could lower it too much which is why I would need to be in the hosp. He wanted to do that so I wouldn't come home , worry about it and come back again. He isn't worried about how high it is because he says he sees people with it higher than that all the time. Anyway, I opted for the pill. It has now been 9 hrs since I took it. I don't know what my bp is but I've been in bed ever since 3:00 when I took that pill. At 9:00 my dh took my bp and it was 166 over 110. Can you believe it? Now I'm awake . It's after midnight. But I slept so much this afternoon. I am worried though.

I also have high blood pressure and the week before my surgery mine stayed high even with me taking my medicine. My DR said it was from worrying. After I had my surgery they wouldn't even give me my BP med while I was in the hospital because my BP ran so low the *whole* time I was there. Hopefully your medicine will start working and soon. I know it took a few days of me taking mine before it really did any good.

Good luck and 'S

Oh goodness!
When it rains it pours!

Try not to worry about the BP. It will only encourage it to stay up there! Maybe put a good movie in our read a good book for awhile to get your mind occupied with something else.

I sure hope your new med kicks in aoon and that you can be headache free!

I been following your BP scare Hi*Ya'll. You had me concerned there for awhile... Glad to see you got it under some control now. Goes to show what worry can do to it. Now take a big breath and get yourself ready for your stay at the CASTLE.

Best of luck...
