Today it's been exactly one month since my surgery and wow, what a month!!! To think I was just coming out of surgery exactly a month ago in the ICU to having a wonderful doctor's appointment today, I couldn't be happier! Everything went well- still in sinus rhythm which was my biggest fear and I get to start cardiac rehab soon which I'm excited about! For anyone having surgery or if you just had surgery, it does get better!!! It's hard to even wrap your ahead around how far you will come in such a short amount a time. You will prevail!!!
Tomorrow will be three weeks since surgery. Trying to learn to be patient with myself. I feel so much better physically in the last couple days, I need to work in the mental side of it! It sure helps hearing from others that are further ahead of me and are feeling great! Thank you for being such a great support system!
I went for my two week appt. post op (mitral valve repair/maze procedure). My heart rate was 148 and wouldn't go down. Everything else was fine. They admitted me and I'm now receiving meds to bring heart rate down. Anyone else go through this?
