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,

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.

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.
