No idea what my pulse rate was prier to my heart attack, I guess ignorance is bliss after all ;-) The angiography report says my starting heart rarte was 58bpm and after my bypass surgery while still hooked up to the mechinery every coupld hours my HR was a steady 77bpm. So, I kept that 77 in mind when I went home. While home and being super sensitive to everything I noticed my HR started dropping. When it dropped to 69 I was terrified, then 65, and all the way to 60. As it dropped further as time went on I started to think there is a real problem. And lately it has dropped to the low 50's... The night before last after getting in bed and relaxing a couple minutes my HR was 47bpm. I do check it often, three or four times a day plus in the early morning and at night and it's in the low 60's high 50's but every now and then I'll read a record low HR. I believe it wont be long before that record low reaches the 30's... maybe another two months(?).
