Hi,
 
For the past 5 years I have been on medication for high blood pressure. Just over 3 weeks ago I had a TKR and as my blood pressure was low after surgery, they took me off my medication. I have been told to take my BP daily at home to monitor it and it remains a low/normal for someone my age (111/72 this morning). Naturally, i am delighted not to have to take my pills at the moment but was wondering why this has happened and if anyone else has had the same issue. Is it likely to remain low or go up again?
 
Please help.
 
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
