I had a Colonoscopy that seemed to go well, no problems. 3 weeks later I had my blood pressure measured and it had jumped from 110/70 typical to 150/90. It has remain high for several months now. I think the Golytely flush and liquid diet impacted my electrolyes and kidneys. Has anyone else had a problem like this?

My blood pressure was 102/70 on one day, two days later after being scared out of my mind with all this stuff thats been going on I had my blood pressure taken and it was 148/90. So that just shows what anxiety/nerves can do to you.....have you been really stressed out when you were getting your blood pressure taken?
My aunt actually had the opposite problem. While taking the prep she passed out due to LOW blood pressure.

Best bet is to make sure you drink not just water during and after the prep but also liquids with some electrolyte supplement. Best bet , Gatorade and other similar sports drinks which are specifically designed with bot hydration and electrolyte balance in mind.

I have had several colonoscopies and suffered no blood pressure problems.
