Guest: Hi i was supposed to be having an operation on tuesday june 17th 2014 in hospital, but i just had my blood pressure done as i had been having palpitations and was concerned so i went to the doctors as i thought it could be stressed related as i am very nervous about it and she tested my blood pressure which she said was a little bit high so she said she can`t put me on any medication as i was going in hospital in a few days. i had to go to the hospital yesterday for some swabs done and blood pressure done again,again they said it was a little high so she said she will see the anaesthetist she can rang me back this afternoon to say with my blood pressure being a little high the anaesthetist said it was to much of a risk to have the operation so they contacted my doctors for me and i have to be monitored now for 24 hours and put me on some medication, so my operation has been cancelled. could you please tell me what could the risk be .
