Hi.After any surgery in the abdomen,there are chances of adhesions formation.These adhesions may cause Pain,particularly near the surgery site.Blood pressure in your case is raised due to anxiety.If the blood pressure is raised even without pain,please exclude Renal artery stenosis.Consult your local doctor for further details.All the best.
