Today I had surgery to remove 2 cervical discs with 2 artificial discs. For years and years I have experiences a very quick heart rate at surgery time.
Before I lost 90 pounds, my rapid heart rate was constant as my high blood pressure. My PCP put me on Metopolol Tartate, which worked very well!. When I lost the weight, I was taken off the meds
Two weeks ago, when I went for my preop exam with my PCP, he put me back on the meds to slow down my heart rate . Sadly, it did not work well. my heart rate was 115-120 in recovery. I don't know what it was during surgery.
Guess my PCP will have to make a decisions about what to do.
