High blood pressure and itching scalp post-op

I am 44 yrs. old and had a abdominal hysterectomy on 1/4/08. Removed uterus and cervix, kept ovaries. I have always had normal to low blood pressure until surgery. During hospital stay blood pressure was 162/102 and gyno said it was from the surgery and pain meds. Had a normal recovery and went back to work at 6 weeks. At 6 week check-up my bp was 145/98. Today it is 144/89 so the gyno is referring me to another dr for follow -up. I do not smoke, drink and I'm in my weight average for height. Another wierd thing, my scalp itches terribly, but I do not have dandruff and dandruff shampoo does not help? Someone told me it could be that I am low on estrogen? Anyone esle have a problem with high bp after hysterectomy when keeping ovaries?

I'm sorry you're experiencing high blood pressure following your surgery. Whilst I didn't myself, there have been other ladies who've complained of this and I hope they'll be along soon to share.

In the meantime, if you try a "search" (click third from the right on the purple bar, towards the top of this page) you'll find plenty of threads/posts to read through. Here's a link to one to start you off: https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...blood+pressure.

You could also try the same for "itchy or itching scalp" ~ reading through a few of the threads, some ladies do mention hormone problems although your doctor would need to diagnose this to be sure. Here's a link to one of many threads: https://www.hystersisters.com/vb2/sho...ht=itchy+scalp.

Sending all good wishes and I hope everything settles down very soon!
