Blood pressure up after surgery?

My blood pressure had been really good (120/70 or so) up until the day of surgery. That day, it was 160/100 going in, I think they gave me something to calm it down before surgery. My question is--2 and 1/2 weeks out, is there anything about the meds or conditions that would raise my pressure? In doc's office this week, they took twice. Once was 143/90, next time 120/100. Would you hurry to a family MD? Or wait and see if it came down in the 3 weeks before my next post-op exam?

I'm not experiencing a lot of pain--just bored from inactivity. No anxiety, lots or hormonal feelings.

Re: Blood pressure up after surgery?

I know that mine was slightly high before surgery, which surprised me as I was really calm about the surgery. When I was in the hospital it was really high. I remember my husband being really concerned and the Dr. concerned, but not overly. It did finally come down to normal though. I would call the Dr. and see what they want you to do.

I feel the same as you do about being bored. I feel really good, so am having a hard time not doing things. I am being really good, but it is hard to be home all day.

I would call your dr.

I was also relieved to have my surgery-I've been in pain for a year and this was my last resort. Mine is slightly higher after surgery but I've gained 7 pounds since my surgery and very emotional.

Re: Blood pressure up after surgery?

Low estrogen levels *can* be a cause of high blood pressure. If your ovaries were removed, or if they're not quite functioning up to par because of the surgery, that might explain it. Do follow up, though, and see your DR if it's staying high.
