  • high blood pressure during BEP

    Hi everyone. I'm currently completing my second of 3 rounds of BEP. I've noticed since starting the treatment course that my blood pressure has been trending up at each visit, with my last test showing 154/82. I have had slightly high blood pressure in the past mainly due to stress and caffeine, however prior to starting treatment my normal blood pressure had been more in the 125-130/80 range. My doctor and most nurses just keep saying we should "keep an eye on it" but no one really seems very concerned. Is this something I should worry about? I know one reasoning given to me was that all the extra fluids could be causing the spike.

    Mine was much higher during chemo than normal. I think nerves and drugs make this an issue. Something to look at but not be worried about.
    3/29/17 Diagnosed 100% Embryonal 4/10/17 Left I/O CT scan shows a few suspicious lymph (biggest 1.9 cm) 5/8/17 - 7/3/17 3xBEP 7/20/17 CT Scan Clear, AFP has uptick to 19 8/16/17 AFP Drops in half to 10, ALL CLEAR! 3/20/19 All clears up to here!

      Thanks for your input. I am glad I'm not alone. I think the overall anxiety of worrying about all the different things happening to my body is just starting to wear on me by now. Ready to get this over with!!

        I was just like you, my BP was on the border of healthy/pre-hypertension. During chemo, it definitely trended up, and doctors didn't seem worried. Since completion, it has now gone back to normal
