Test of Effort today
Thought I would let you know how my Test of Effort (riding a cycle whilst wearing an ECG) went.
Apparently, my cardiologist said that I was fine and in fact I had improved from my first check up. Good news. I asked about the ectopic or missed beats which I felt whilst exercising or sometimes just sitting. He said that everyone suffered with these, they were innocent and that I should ignore it.
I also asked what percentage was I making use of the PM. He said that until the six month check he could not tell me. He suspected that because my heart rate has been set at 50 and before PM my heart dropped each night to 29/30 I was using it through the night and sometimes when I rested in the evening. Not in the day if my heart goes over 50. Hopefully Electric Frank will let me know if that answer seems good.
He also confirmed that I was doing well without Beta Blockers and said to keep taking the magnesium and small aspirin per day.
My question is, why oh why am I still concerned about these so called innocent flutters!
Never mind I am going to concentrate on regaining my stamina and strength in my legs both of which I have lost since last September being the last time I really exercised hard.
Well my next check is in September, so if I have any questions I think I will put them to the site, because I understand the language spoken here.
