As I mentioned two weeks ago (Cardiac Concern), I had to wear a Holter Monitor for a week because of a low heart rate incident. I did that and turned it in and waited for week. There was no call from the cardioligist, so I called them on Friday. They were confused because they had intended to order it for me to wear for the monitor 30 days but instead it was ordered for 7 days.
I had two incidents of atrial fibillation symptoms during that time. Those symptoms had not occurred since long before my surgery last year. I was working on installing ceiling lights in a kitchen and apparantly working with a heavy fixture over my head brought it on. The cardioligists did not seem concerned about that. However, there was at least one event that I did not detect but the Holter Monitor did detect when my heart rate fell to 35 again. They still don’t know why or what to do.
They have decided that I must get fitted again tomorrow for the monitor and wear it for 30 days this time. I hate that because going to the gym is embarrassing with the electrodes on your chest and the wires hanging down and also I wouldn’t get to use the therapy tub or steam room. Oh well, maybe we will figure it out this time.
Again… More will be revealed. Maybe.
