High BP/Surgery

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had a pre-op including a EKG, chest xray, and blood work for a spinal surgery done a month ago which showed everything was normal. However my surgery got postponed due to my other schedule. My neurosurgeon said it'd be fine to proceed without another pre-op except blood work that'll be done in the day of my surgery. However, I developed high blood pressure since my last pre-op and am on BP meds now. Is this something I need to mention to my surgeon that perhaps will make me have another pre-op done prior to the surgery?
