Im a 29 year old female. My blood pressure is 140/108 and pulserate is 110. It has been like this for 6 months. I had a surgery a year ago where thet took out my bowel and put it back in after discovering a tear in my uterus that took place during a DNC. I have never had high blood pressure before this. Could the surgery have resulted in highbp? Could this be an inication something happened during surgery. Sinve surgery I have put on 60 pounds. Could my weight gain be the soul reason for high blood pressure? I have two children during both pregnancy"s I gained over a 100 pounds and NEVER had high blood pressure. I did loose all the weight after their births. Since DNC surgery and uterus repair surgery where they removed bowel and replaced it I have gained the weight and now have very high bp and Im having a hard time loosing the weight. HELP Please. I feel like Im slowly dying inside!!!!!
