My brother was experincing High Blood Pressure, palpitation, Headaches for sometime now. This encounters were observed every 2 3 days.

We consultated the doctors and they did many tests and after the "24 hour urine cathecalomine" test it was observed that epinephrine hormone was on higher content.
Because of this the doctors suggested CT Scan and MRI of right and left abdomen from which it was found that right Adrenal Gland had a pheochoromocytoma tumour. It was suggested by doctors that this migh be the reason of High Blood Pressure and requires to be operated and removed along with the Adrenal Gland.

He was operated about 8 weeks back after which the High Blood Pressure was not encountered for a week. But then it started again though not so high like before but he was experiencing some mild (higher then the normal) palpitation.

We are not able to find out the exact reason for this but the doctors are suggesting the post operative effects which will go away after some time period.

Any suggestion/advices for the same?
