Heart problems

Has any one had to have an EKG done since hysterectomy?
I had one and found out my heart skips the first beat. Now the doc wants me to have an echo. Does anyone know what he is talking about or have experienced this problem. I didn't realize I had trouble. I went in because Red Cross said my blood pressure was high. It's just been a little less than a year since my surgery and I have found that for everything good it did there has been something bad. My eyesight worsened which the eye doc said is normal for hysts, my blood pressure went up (and I don't even take HRT), my bone density is the pits, had appendectomy 7 months after surgery and now this heart thing. I didn't realize all the troubles.
Thanks for your help and advice.

I havent had that particular problem but from all I've learned concerning Hysterectomy & Ovarian removal, each can carry some serious complications Our Ovaries do so much for our over-all health, the full extent is still being discovered. I have experienced an increase in Blood Pressure since my Hyst..prior to I always had very low readings. Here is info I found to be very informative on the effects of this surgery & Menopause:

Hi Ran My surgery was just a couple of weeks before yours... and no, you're not the only one!

My blood pressure was fine the first six months and then it shot up... I ended up in the ER, and later had an EKG too. My EKG results were normal and I'm working on lowering the bp.... my DR has me walking at least an hour, three times a week and it has helped a little bit. My eyesight changed a little bit, too, especially the close vision.

I am on HRT, and the huge rise in bp occurred when I dropped my dosage down extremely low. You mentioned you are not on HRT. Have you had your hormone levels checked? Dr. Vliet ("Screaming to be Heard") discusses a correlation between low estrogen level and high blood pressure, which runs counter to some theories that estrogen can cause high bp ... might be worth a look just to validate your experience.

I just wanted you to know you're not alone. I hope your echo goes well and everything turns out to be fine.
