After the operation while I was in King's my blood pressure was high and fluctuating, but after 2.5 mg Bisoprolol was prescribed Thursday morning and I was allowed to go home late Thursday afternoon it came right down and remained low. Sunday, Dr Lindsay halved the dose and the systolic remained withing a range of 99 to 117, but in the afternoon I felt totally wiped out. To cut a long story short, I was readmitted to KCH for a few hours this morning so that they could do a blood test and ECG, both of which turned out to be perfectly normal, so I'm back home again. For the time being I'm not taking anything for blood pressure, and with luck it'll settle down before I see Mr R for a checkup on Thursday week.
