Vascular Surgeon Questions Blood Pressure

Does vascular surgery have an effect on blood pressure?

I underwent vascular surgery 3 months ago, and ever since then, my blood pressure has been high. Is it a common result of such surgeries? After how long should it stabilize? Should I get help?

It is unlikely that your operation caused her high blood pressure. However, I would need to know more precisely what operation you had. Any high blood pressure needs to be treated if it persists.
No, I would mention it to your vascular surgeon and ask if there is any connection to the procedure.

Depending on what surgery you had, there can be temporary post op hypertension. Since thisvis persistant, you will need an evaluation as to the cause. You should see your primary care physician to discuss
Peripheral vascular surgery has no effect in elevating the blood pressure
You should get help to control your hypertension
Venous surgery does not typically affect blood pressure as there are many veins throughout the legs and the pressure in the veins is low. If you have had an elevated blood pressure for the last 3 months, I would recommend contacting your vascular surgeon as well as your primary care physician for further evaluation.
Not really. Occasionally a renal artery angioplasty affects the blood pressure
Hypertension is a risk factor for peripheral arterial disease (PAD). There definitely is a strong association between the two. I would recommend seeing your PCP for blood pressure monitoring/management.
It is great that you are taking care of your self!
Typically vascular surgery itself will not affect the blood pressure unless you are in significant pain after surgery and then that can raise the blood pressure.
