Hypertension after angioplasty?

  1. 0
    Hello,

    My dad had an angioplasty this past Friday 1/18. Everything went well, he stayed overnight, and was discharged from the hospital on Saturday. However, he had hypertension after the procedure (180s/90s). He's diabetic and his blood sugar has been a bit high as well. I'm just worried as to why his BP is still high. Is this normal after an angioplasty??
    His meds are as follows:
    Aspirin 81mg, 1 tab Daily
    Carvedilol 6.25mg, 1 tab Twice Daily
    Glyburide 5mg, 1 tab Daily
    Simvastatin 40mg, 1 tab at bedtime
    Brilinta 90mg, 1 tab Twice Daily
    Diovan 160mg, 1 cap Daily
    Lisinopril 30mg, 1 tab Daily

    I figured someone might be able to help here.

    I'm sorry but these questions need to be addressees with your father's physician. There is no way we can advise you on an Internet message board.
