My fusion is scheduled for September 14: fusion of L4 L5 using BMP. I went to my general practitioner for my pre operative physical and a disorder called Wolff Parkinson White (WPW) was found. From what I understand, this means I have an extra electric pathway to the heart, which can cause my heart to beat faster at times. Which is odd because my resting heart rate is really, really low. Anyway, I'm scheduled for a cardio-lite (sp) on Tuesday with a cardiologist. I'm not so much freaked out over the possibility of WPW as I am that the surgery might be delayed. I was supposed to have surgery in May but then was delayed until September. The pain is really bad and I just need to get on the road to less pain.
Has anyone out there had a heart problem discovered at their pre-operative physical? How did this affect the surgery? Was it delayed?
