Hi everyone, our new member, @SDruse221, has been having quite a bit of trouble after having her PFO closure completed recently. I am describing her symptoms below- would love to hear from you all on this!
About a day or two after her procedure, she noticed that her resting and walking heart rate was significantly higher. She also mentioned that she often felt palpitations. She also seems to have had a few EKGs done at those times that were sinus rhythm or sinus tachycardia with PACs, PJCs, and PVCs. Now she’s on metoprolol and eliquis in addition to plavix, and is feeling pretty bummed out because of it. She is really wondering if others have had similar experiences, and if they were able to come off the medications after.
Would greatly appreciate you all chiming in!
