Hi..I had a brain tumor removed from my brainstem almost 2 years ago and I have had so many problems with high blood pressure ever since. I never had high blood pressure before surgery.. My cardiologist has put me on a couple different kinds of meds..and different milligrams.. they will work for awhile or they will drop my blood pressure way low. I was just wondering if this is a problem resulting from where my tumor was taken out..will it ever be normal again? I am off of work for the 2nd time in the past year because of high blood pressure. thanks
Hi, Thank you for your question. It is unlikely to relate with the condition although headache and few neurological symptoms might be related with post surgical complication. Besides excessive stress, sedentary life style, alcohol or smoking, hereditary factors may also contribute to high blood pressure. Please consult with the your treating doctor for a clinical examination and routine investigations. I hope it helps.
