Post op high blood pressure and racing heart

I am 3 weeks post op and I am having trouble w my blood pressure being high and my heart racing very fast. I had normally low pressure before surgery. Not sure if it’s normal and what to do about it. Pressure goes up to 180/98 and pulse 140.

Irritation to the upper cervical spinal cord during surgery can cause the autonomic nervous system to malfunction - think wonky sleep habits, temperature control, blood pressure and heart rate. With that being said high blood pressure is a cause for concern. Hopefully, you have come and gone from having it checked out.

Good luck with your recovery!

I see the Dr Wednesday. Is there something you can do for what you are talking about?
