Day 2 at home (5 days post op)
Currently on an aspirin regimen, metoprolol to suppress any bouts of afib and Tramadol for pain.
Bowel movements are not an issue nor hunger or energy. But sleep is a bit of a strange phenomenon as I don't ever feel that I am really asleep or awake. I'm an incredibly light sleeper now and find myself waking up a few times at night drenched in sweat with heart rate above 105. It calms back down to the 80 range after laying back down and assuring myself that everything's ok. I sweat quite often now and have to change my clothes or carry around a wet towel to cool myself. I feel as if I am having mini heat flashes. But then again I also get cold real easily too and my hands feel like they are freezing. When I walk around the house I feel light headed as if I'm in a bit of a haze. It could be the drugs or my body trying to repair itself from the major trauma it recently suffered.
