Can I still have gastric sleeve surgery if my blood pressure is high right before going into surgery?

This is mainly due to white coat syndrome as my BP always sky rockets as soon as someone says they are going to take my blood pressure

If your blood pressure is too high they will work to get it down. It will depend on the bp and what the anesthesiologist thinks.
