Dear Ma'm
Thanks for writing to us.
Most probable cause for this high heart was anxiousness related to a pre-employment check-up. Whenever there is an increase in heart rate (which is otherwise normal in origin, which i presume was there in your case) we look for a cause for this increase. anxiety is one of such causes. since your heart rate came down to 92 after relaxation, it further gives us assurance. second reassurance comes from your being fit and a normal ECG during fibroid surgery. if your ECG was otherwise normal (when the doctor did it at 92) then you need not worry. hopefully it was just the stress which increased your heart rate. please feel free to write if you have any more concern.
