Three weeks ago I had a hysterectomy. I had been bleeding (vaginally) heavy for 4 months. 4 days before surgery I was given a blood transfusion (2 units). The reason I went to the ER on the day of the transfusion was because I could not get my heart to stop beating so hard. I walked up a flight of stairs. I felt the blood drain from my face. The EKG showed my heart was working to hard. My question is that now after 3 weeks It is still beating to hard when I walk up the steps. I realize that I am still healing from the surgery. Also, I tore my incision open and now it has to heal as an open wound. Am I being impatient? I have also had 3 C-Sections But I felt much better then, at this time than I do now. Is it something to worry about? Or should I give it more time? Thank you for your response. Donna
