In brief: Not related

Any cause of pain (including being in the postop period) will cause the BP to rise.
This is normal and not to be confused with the disease of "hypertension." gb surgery doesn't cause hypertension, but the scrutiny of being in the medical system may lead to recognition of a pre-existing condition that previously had gone unrecognized.
