Hi phil127,

Pain following surgery would be a more common and likely reason for elevated blood pressure. You're right that not taking the blood pressure medications will cause a transient increase in blood pressure. However I presume that your wife is now back on her normal medications and the blood pressure has returned to normal.

If the blood pressure remains high this is unlikely to be related to the anesthetic. I would recommend follow up with your family physician.

Best of luck.
