increased blood pressure after cataract surgery
(Spartanburg, S. C.)
On 1//4/12, I had cataract surgery on my right eye. Surgery went great, no complications. Vision greatly improved immediately. While I was in recovery, my blood pressure went from 133/77 (pre-op) to 194/104. It ranged high for about 2 hours and additional drugs were given to decrease pressure.
The doctors did not know why there was the increase in blood pressure. I have never had blood pressure problems and do not take any medication at all......... Age 71 in excellent health.
Has anyone had similar issues...?
