Hi everyone, I have just gotten back from an emergency doctors appointment (was in crippling pain), and she took my blood pressure again and said it was a little bit high.
She's trying to arrange for me to have a ABPM to measure my blood pressure when I'm away from the surgery to check if my high blood pressure is only when I'm at the hospital/doctors because of anxiety.
We're both concerned that if the hospital find that my blood pressure is high tomorrow (at my pre-op assessment for my laparoscopy on Friday) then they won't operate. I'm in desperate need of this operation to give me some answers, and I'm pretty convinced my blood pressure only reads as high when measured because I've been so stressed and ill with this pain and have been talking about it in an anxiety-provoking environment (doctors surgery).
Anybody else been in this position? I'm super desperate for them to operate because as I said, it's gotten to the point where I can't live with this pain anymore and I need answers
