Hypertension after angioplasty?

by smt1616 smt1616 (New) New


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.
