LOW blood pressure

So, I have decided that is I have any glitch in my plan for the perfect TAH/BSO it will be that I have naturally low blood pressure. Not a little low like 74/45, more like 64/31 when I went in for my pre-op on Friday. This is normal for me (and after I drank about a pot of coffee and I am a smoker, little, but still a smoker). So after I have my surgery I am sure that my pressure will be even lower. I just don't want to end up getting sent to one of the big hospitals. Every time I have been in the hosp. for any surgery they always think I am going to have a stroke. You'd think that they could LOOK AT MY FLIPPING CHART?

I know that it sounds like a silly thing to worry about, but I guess when you have nothing else to worry about the little things become the only thing you have to latch on to.

LOW blood pressure

I also have low blood pressure and had to tell the nurse everytime it was checked that it is normally low........even before surgery when I was nervous! Just be prepared to tell your story often! Good luck to you!

LOW blood pressure

Me, too. I am always "accused" of not being nervous at the hospital, when I actually am and my BP is high for me, but finally approaching something close to the so-called normal. You could always write in on your arm just below where the BP cuff goes...

LOW blood pressure

just make sure you make the anesthesiologists and nurses aware of what your normal blood pressure is so there are no worries. you might need some meds during surgery to bring it up some so its good to make sure they know what your base numbers usually are. good luck

LOW blood pressure

Please, make certain to tell the anesthesiologist! I did not with map lap surgery I had in August and had 2 close calls where they had to stop the surgery and give me drugs to counteract it. This time I know to tell them ahead of time.

LOW blood pressure

I too have low blood pressure and on my first night after surgery the nurse was freaking. I didn't get a wink of sleep because she kept coming in to take my BP over and over and over....... The second night I slept like a baby, I was so exhausted! Good luck to you tomorrow!

LOW blood pressure

I normally have low blood pressure too but at the hospital it was pretty low..Like 70ish over 45 was the lowest but I think I kept freaking some of them out. Other times, they acted like it was ok.
