It is a very vague question. You blood pressure should have two readings, Higher one is Systolic and lower one is diastolic. how much is your blood pressure and what medicine you take for Blood pressure? what kind of surgery it is?

Blood pressure 140/90 is mild stage 1 hypertention. Your Blood pressure is 140/100 which in inthe range almost stage 1. As you got problem with heart valves I think you should ask your doctor for medication. Usually a mild diuretic bendoflurazide 2.5 mgm daily will be adequate. Along with it you should stop smoking, reduce weight and take low salt and avoid ghee butter etc.
