Kidney Stent

My sister had a kidney stent put in about 5 weeks ago.  She'd been having problems with her periods and by an off chance when having an ultrasound they discovered her kidney hadn't been draining properly.  She went for further tests and it still wasn't draining properly and that one of the tubes coming from the kidneys was narrow.  The specialist was surprised she hadn't been in a lot of pain but she wasn't getting any back pain other than when she was on her period.  She had the stent put in under general aneastetic about 5 weeks ago and was due to get it taken out 10 days or so ago but she couldn't have because her blood pressure was too high.  When she came around from having her stent put her blood pressure was sky high, something over 140. They gave her some gel on her tongue and it came down quite quick.

They wanted to monitor her blood pressure for when they stent was due out because she has to have a general again.  She went to the Dr's a day before it was due out and her blood pressure was still high 191/108.   They told her she would have to cancel the op and wait until the new year.  She's due back at the Dr's again Monday for another blood pressure check.  Does anyone know why her blood pressure should be so up and down?  She's only 28, relatively fit and has no other health problems other than asthma.  She was due back in on the 8th Jan to get the stent out but she's away then so having to reschedule.

Thanks for reading and sorry it's so long
