Now nearly 4 weeks since my procedure and still getting to grips with it all. First week off work did very little ,second week back to work and tried a bit of walking and swimming .(this was all still pretty hard breathlessness and raised heart rate - I am quite a good swimmer but lucky if I can now do 50m front crawl without having to stop . Heart still over 80 at rest (I am usually under 60 ) This week has been really hard .Ok in the mornings at work but midway through the afternoon my energy levels just drop like going off a cliff . Its a bit disappointing but I guess this is what happens. Like some of the others on here you hear stories of people getting back to doing the normal things fairly quickly but in reality I think I am still a long way off. Anyway I am getting more used to my heart now ruling my head rather than the other way around! One good thing is I do sleep like a log.
