So I was so happy in April of 2010 (6 months post op), my doctor took me off both of my high blood pressure meds. Success!! YAY!
Unfortunately, the blood pressure is starting to creep up again. At my primary care doctor appointment yesterday, they took two readings and both times it was in the 150s over 90s. Sigh.
I will continue to check it every day at home with my blood pressure cuff and go back to the doctor to reassess in three weeks. The cuff at home is reporting high readings as well. Double sigh.
Will I have to go back on medication? I hope not.
I can't help but wonder if being obese for 20+ years already did some irreversible damage in regards to my blood pressure?
