WLS and blood pressure

A Reuters story reports that a recent study found a significant reduction in high blood pressure after gastric-bypass surgery.

According to the story, published Monday, March 20: "Patients who had not been taking drugs to treat their hypertension prior to surgery saw a significant easing of their blood pressure afterward, and some of those on anti-hypertension drugs were able to stop taking them, according to a study published in the Archives of Surgery."

So far, I have not been as fortunate as the group studied. My blood pressure, though significantly lower than before I had weight loss surgery, still hovers around 140/100.
