Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
It could be related to your gastric bypass because there is imbalance in food digestion after it and some food may trigger bp variations. you should at more frequently but smaller meals and avoid alcohol, sweers and fried food. Also,drink plenty of water and avoid salty food. If nothing works you should see cardiologist and channge your medications. Wish you good health. Regards
