If her surgery was recent, it could be from the drugs administered. However, there is a study that shows a link between hypertension (high blood pressure) and hysterectomy. If her ovaries were removed, estrogen "replacement" (nothing can truly replace the ovaries) may help keep her blood pressure in the normal range.

Give her time to heal...Blood pressure always will act up after surgery...I have had a problem with this since I was 27 years old...Oh and I had my Hysterectomy at age 47 and started immediately on Premarin (which is estrogen) Near ten years ago they changed me to Estring which is Estrogen in a Vaginal Disc...My blood pressure now is 119/65/69, so I am pretty normal...I have found that when you relax and not worry about it that your mind does too..Tell her to watch her salt...Be careful with sugar and fatty meats...They can be the culprit...Take care...
