Jeannette asks:

"I have had 3 ASD closeures, at my check up a few weeks ago I was told that my pulse was racing and was put on more medication, what is meant by this and what are the implications."

Judy says:

It is not unusual for people to develop disturbances to their heart rhythm following heart surgery. Most of these disturbances are treated with medication which helps to control the symtoms and the rhythm itself.

There are many different types of disturbances to the heart rhythm and you can read about them in our booklet "Heart rhythms".

I hope the rest of your recovery will be stress free, and that you feel better soon. Thank you for your question today.
