Mine dropped, but I had high BP to start with, 160/90 pre-op. After surgery i dropped to 115/65 for the first month or so, and I had to back way off on my BP meds. I though that I could drop them, but my BP started creeping up after about six weeks, and I am still on low doses.
I think a lot of mine was that during especially the liquid phase, I ate nearly zero extra salt. After I started eating firm protein- (fish- chicken- cheese) my salt intake went up, and this raised my bp back up. The low doses of Attenolol and hydrochlorothysizde (sp) keep me about 120/70 now.
Make sure you are taking enough vitamins too. I take two Flintstones chew-ables a day still at 11 months, as well as extra potassium, C,D, and Omega 3's. Low electrolytes like potassium and magnesium can screw things up too.
I had anemia a couple of years ago, and I also take an iron tablet every day. If you are feeling faint or weak make sure your docs do a red blood cell count with ferritin as this is another thing that can creep up on us with our weird rapid loss diets.
Finally, make sure you are getting in plenty of watter, 64 oz a day is a MINIMUM. If you are dehydrated and feeling faint you are NOT safe to drive. I know a surgeon that was sued by a patient because he said they were ok to drive a week after surgery and the drugs were out of their system. A couple of weeks later the patient was not drinking enough and got dehydrated and had an accident after passing out, and of course tried to sue the doctor. Well he did say she was ok to drive.....
Anyhow, you urine should be almost clear. If it is not, then get sipping more. I had a hard time drinking plain water, but could drink 100 oz a day of decaff iced tea. Sometimes having the water a different temperature helps. Try it warm, room temp, or cold. Whatever works.
Good luck, Mack
