I am 6 weeks post op on a mitral valve

I am 6 weeks post op on a mitral valve prostheses, maze procedure for afib, arterial ligation, and bypass. I am 43 yrs old and have been recuperating ahead of schedule. I was in the yard slightly bent over not digging but skimming the dirt off the top when I started feeling light headed. I walked inside feeling really dizzy almost fainted. I checked my BP and it was 88/60 HR of 88bmp seemed low so I checked it again. It was 143/90 88bmp HR afterwards about 15 minutes I felt fine. Back to normal BP 109/70 87 BPM HR.

Hello, I am 56 yr old male, 2 months post op from mitral valve repair. It went very well. Duing the pre-operative analyses they found I have 25% blockage in two cardiace arteries. I have no symptoms. My exercise now includes a weekly 3.5 mph hike for 14 miles. I have started a few cardiac rehab sessions to learn how to avoid further problems and see if the a Holter monitor would detect anything unusual during exercise. I had PVCs during exercise. They had never shown up on any EKG before. 1- Are the PVC s likely a result of the surgery? 2 - Would it be reasonable to expect that the PVC frequency would go down as I go into my 3rd month post op? Thanks, Brad YYYY@YYYY
