Husband had bladder cancer, now has neobladder, check ups normal, high blood pressure and high protein level now. Reasons?

My husband had bladder cancer 10 years ago. He now has a neobladder. Since his surgery ALL of his check ups have been good with no issues whatsoever. Well he had his physical for work and his protein level was 2+. Also his blood pressure was high. His oncologist (which is not the surgeon that diagnosed him or preformed his surgery, he now lives in Florida) told me it was okay and that sometimes there would be a trace of protein. Well my issue is that in the last 10 years his protein level was was always normal as well as his blood pressure. So why are they high now?

Hi and welcome to HCM.
It doesnt have to be related t ohis previous surgery. MAny people develop high blood pressure,most common it is called esential. The same is with proteins in urine. It can be found in healthy people too. But I suggest to do kidney ultrasound and creatinin and urea blood levels. If this is normal then he has nothing to worry about. Just regulate blood pressure by standard medicines.
Wish you good health.
