Palpitations after VSG

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious if anyone experienced rapid palpitations after surgery.  I am usually resting at 65-75 bpm but since surgery have noticed erratic high numbers.  My APN stated this was normal but the sensations are rather alarming.  Went to the ER and everything is good lab and cardiac wise but palpitations continue (9 days out from surgery).  APN says that this will resolve within a few weeks but this has me rather unnerved.  Any insight?

Erratic changes in heart rate are not normal. The may or may not be pathological, but are not normal. You did the right thing by seeking medical attention. If they continue ask your APN to refer you to an internist or cardiologist for further evaluation.
