Hello ,
The present blood pressure of 117/ 89 is within normal and requires no treatment.
The shoot up to 149 may be reactionary to the cramping pain , and if it is a one time phenomenon that you need not be worried about the same .
However keep a tab on your blood pressure just to see the trend.
Lastly because of recent operation , if there is any recurrence of the pain , Get it evaluated to make sure that we not not having any problems there .
Wishing you Good health .
