The medications that you are taking will decrease the risks of an infection delaying operation, but you should not be on them long-term. Any questions you should contact your ENT surgeon.

If the next 2-3 readings show your BP to be at 140/90 or more, then you would be labelled as hypertensive. If the BP is below this level then you should recheck it again every 3-6 months for one year before you will be certain whether your BP requires medical treatment of not. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
