    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.

    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

    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!!
