My friend has had surgery on both sides of his neck, After the first one his blood pressure lowered a small bet. Then after the second one , his blood pressure is like 109/68 laying down, 86/46 sitting , and like 69/32 standing, and sometimes lower. He does fall alot, has broken a leg in the last two weeks and just the other day he fell and broke his nose with cuts and scrapes, The Doctors thought it was his heart, but he has a strong heart, Could the veins in the neck be so damaged that this is what is causing the problem?
