lowerleft back pain with blood pressure 150/100
What is your surgeon telling you?
You didn't mention how long ago you had the surgery.
Have you had any other surgery? People heal differently. Don't forget they had to go through major muscle groups to get to your heart. Adhesions are another complicating factor. There is nothing you can do to prevent them.
The worst thing you can do is "baby" the area. If it's post-op healing, deep breathing and progressive exercise is important.
A heating pad may help the pain as well as increasing the circulation to the area by dilating the blood vessels.
Your BP is another worrisome factor that needs some attention. High BP can cause kidney and heart damage plus dementia over the long term.
Was that a one time reading?
I'd advise you to get a BP machine and take regular readings.
- In the morning upon awakening
- A time during stress both emotional and physical.
- Later in the day when you are relaxed.
- Prior to bed.
- Take it sitting down and then standing.
You only need to do this for a week. Find the time when it's the highest and then monitor that time daily.
This will give your doctor a good idea what your pattern is. He needs to know what the changes are and if your heart is resting or if it's high all the time.
You only need to do it for a week prior to your appointment.
I think he needs to know about this right away.
If he already does then I would call my Primary just for you to know it's not an oversight.
