Dizziness, lightheadedness on standing with momentary vision loss post spinal fusion, had silent heart attack before surgery. Normal?

I had spinal fusion about 6 weeks ago and I am experiencing dizziness and light headedness. I am no longer on pain meds. It mostly happens when I stand up or look from side to side. I have even lost my vision for a few seconds upon standing. I had a silent heart attack before my surgery, but I don t know when. Is the dizziness normal?

Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon
On the basis of information provided it appears your dizziness can be because postural hypotension or it could be benign positional vertigo. I would advise you for a neurologust, ENT and a physician consultation to get on to the cause of dizziness.
Dizziness is never normal

With warm regards
