You need to talk with your cardiologist, but I bet if you feel that good to travel, you will be fine. It's when you start losing the ability to breath, get very weak that it is critical. The doctors pay alot of attention to how a patient feels. I have a weak heart beat too. My HR is in mid 40's and I still have energy and feel good. Enjoy your trip. Hey Jude..
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Most people who are affected by a virus that weakens the heart recover well with medication and continuous follow ups. As long as you do not do any strenuous activity you will be fine. Normally there is no contraindication to flying. You should consult your cardiologist and see what is advised. Take care!
