I had my fusion over 2 weeks ago, and my spondylolithesis fixed. Well on the 2nd day after surgery, during my walk in the hall with the PT people, my heartrate jumped to 158 and my blood pressure skyrocked too. The docs there thought the anastesia brought it on or maybe combined with a panic attack, which i had never had before. (note I was not panicked...very calm)
I am 33 yrs old and very healthy, non smoker. I always have a very low low blood pressure and heartrate in the 60's or so. Everytime I go to rite aid now I check my blood pressure. It borders on the HIGH normal since the surgery, and my heartrate is 109-111 everytime. I dont understand. I do not run to the blood pressure machine lol. I have my mom take hers after me, and her heartrate is in the 60's. What is going on. The last time I took my heartrate, I was overdue for percocet by over an hour, so I dont think it is that. Any ideas?
