Hello
Did anyone else experience an elevated (at rest) pulse rate? In the hospital they had me on meds for it, but released me without the medication. My phys. therapist hasn't been able to begin my treatment because my pulse is way too fast. I went to my GP and he gave me medicine. Lets hope that works! Please let me know if you've heard of this after surgery
thank you!

Jenn,
I had a very elevated heart rate for the first few days in the hospital due to low blood oxygen levels. My normal rate is approx. 85 and I was reading at times up to 120. I'm sure that part of it also had to due with the stress that the body is under while recovering. I hope that your doctors can find a solution for you soon.
