Brief Answer:
Can doctors get serious about your Blood pressure?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this prolapse that you have and the inability to get the planned surgery because of high blood pressure. Increased blood pressure is not good going into surgery but this alone cannot delay surgery by up to 4months. Your doctors need to be serious and aggressive towards obtaining the desired blood pressure before your planned surgery can be undertaken. With good drugs 1-2weeks is enough to get the reading to an acceptable figure that would have minimal impact on surgery and its outcome.

Your symptoms remind us of the need to get the surgical correction done soon so as to prevent similar occurrences Ask your doctor what the limiting factor is as this seems unlikely to be blood pressure and no one has been able to do something in the past 5months. I have a strong feeling that there are other reasons unknown to you that must be making this surgery not possible at this time beside the increased blood pressure.

I hope you find this helpful. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down. He has high blood pressure and on meds, but never diagnosed with anything else. He is currently working out of town and lives alone. I am very concerned. What could that be?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
