heart rate hours after surgery

Did anyone have a problem with their heart rate being irratic.
Mine was going from 53 to 80, back and forth.

I just so happened to of had a cardiologist nurse that had just started where I was at a surgery center.

She told me "off the record it looked like it could be micral valve prolapse. Asked me if I had used Phen-phen, and that was it.

I saw my dr the next morning for just a few seconds and he was going to another surgery, so it wasn't even talked about.

They didn't keep the monitor hooked up to me so I didn't hear anything else about it.

Did anyone else have this problem?

She said it could of been do to meds but nothing else was done or said?

heart rate hours after surgery

My heartrate was pinging around like a demented table tennis ball for the first week or so. If you feel ok, I wouldn't worry about it yet. Apparently the anaesthetics used, particularly morphine, can sometimes cause this to happen.

If you're worried about it at all, check with your dr or the anaesthetist.

Hope you feel better soon.

heart rate

Hi-- I had the same problem, but my was a lot higher. My heart rate was 130-145. They came with an ekg machine and tested me. They were concerned. They told me that your heart rate can be effected by the anthesia, but they don't get too concerned till the heart rate goes over 125. That's what the nurse told me. Also did yopu have lots of edema(water retention). I did. Hope this helps--Supergin

I am still a LIW, but I can comment on mitral valve prolapse. I have mitral valve prolapse (MVP), essentially all it means is that your mitral valve is floppy. Normally it can be heard through a stethoscope because it makes an extra sound, so the heart doesn't have its usual "lub-dub" sound. I was born with mine, but they can also be caused from rhuematic fever (sp?) and some drugs. It just means that your mitral valve is either not closing all of the way anymore (floppy), it could be too short, or it could be too long (my case) where it sags when closing. A routine EKG will detect any abnormalities, and they might want to do an echocardiogram (heart ultrasound) to see if its leaking. Don't worry, its not likely that you'll need valve replacement, but if it leaks they'll want you to take antibiotics before surgery and dental procedures to reduce the likelihood of infection. It will be all right, and yes the meds they gave you in the hospital can also cause your heart to act loopy!

heart rate

Thanks for the responses, it has calmed the worry I have until I get released from my gyno,

I have scheduled an appt with my regular dr. to check this out. Because I was on phen-phen for 3 years.

I guess it is better to be safe than sorry!!
