Can hip surgery have led to fluctuating blood pressure?

hi. my blood pressure continues to fluxuate reaching as high as 168 over 100 like right now, 4 am. I have been on 3 BP meds and none of them kept m BP down below 140-150 over 90 s. The Dr. was going to prescribe beta blockers, but I choose not to continue that route. I am currently seeing a naturopath who is helping me with a natural med: carditone. I am also going to have a sleep study done next week. I have become less active as I have to have hip surgery, bone on bone in my right hip, so I cannot even walk around a block. I have intense stress at my live-in job and am not sleeping, thus the sleep study idea. My main concern is waking with these very high #s and this persisting. I mean how long can you keep having these #s?

After going through your medical query I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that to undergo hip surgery you should have good control on your blood pretend I think you should take allopathy medicine till you don't get the surgery done.

After recovery, you can get back to your natural antihypertensive meds.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
