Question: My father had piles surgery done 7 days back. This is the second time he underwent piles surgery. Post surgery, his face has swollen and his BP and Sugar have been fluctuating. His Sugar was low 2 days after surgery and now his BP is 177/90. Please advise if swelling of face and BP and Sugar fluctuations are due to surgery and what should be the future course of action? He is taking the same medicines which he used to take before surgery. No change in BP and Sugar medication.

Brief Answer:
Post surgical stress

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Low sugars and high blood pressure could be due to stress secondary to the surgery. Need not worry both of the parameters would surely return back to normal. Let him continue on the same medication as he is on. Do observe the levels regularly. If the levels go too low or high then do consult his treating doctor. With the above blood pressure fluid restriction and salt restriction with medications would suffice.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Hi Dr XXXXXXX

Thanks a lot for your detailed reply. Is swelling of face also common post surgery? And does fluid restriction means he cannot drink more than certain amount of water/fluids in a day?

Thanks and Regards,

Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Yes, due to physical stress there can be hemodynamic changes which can lead to swelling in the face too.

Fluid restriction means to drink lesser amount than usual.

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
