    Hi Sarah, is your blood pressure normally high-ish? that could just be your normal. If your worried they wont operate buy an electric blood pressure kit and check it daily for a while, if it continues to be high either explain its your normal or go to the doctor for hypertensive tablets to lower it prior to the op. They cannot not go ahead with your BA, its not worryingly highXXX

    I only get it checked at my 6 monthly pill check – it wasn’t high the last time but was the time before – I think it might be stress related :s just worried because it’s so close to my op. Going to the doctors to get it checked again on Monday. Thanks x

    Hi Sarah mine was similar to yours at my pre op, I went to my GP and got put on beta blockers to lower it, I also had to get my GP to send a letter to confirm it was being kept under control… This all happened about 3 weeks ago and my op is next week so as long as you do something about it quickly I’m sure you’ll be fine! I’m still worried that I’ll turn up on the day and it’ll be too high to have my op, think mine is down to anxiety as well and the thought of surgery is enough to make anyone anxious! Good luck and I hope you get yours sorted 🙂 x

    The top number is coming down but the bottom number is still in the high 90’s been told to carry on getting readings the rest of the week and then seeing the surgeon on Friday – fingers crossed x

    When I went for my pre op my blood pressure was sky high cause I got in such a state so had to go to my doctor n get a written letter to prove that it was just nerves! On the day of the op my blood pressure was high again but after the op it was all back to normal, I was so worried they were going to do it!
