Well my 5 year old daughter has recently been found to have high blood pressure. She went in for surgery on the 3rd for a broken arm and we were told that her leg b/p was way higher than her arms while under anesthesia. We have since re-checked and it continues to be the case. She has an appointment with the cardiologist on 1/24. Does anyone know what this could mean. I can't find any answers on the internet.
