I just went for an echocardiogram last week, and everything looked good. I did a 30 day event monitor about two months ago, and my Cardiologist was pleased with the results.
I have been off the Metoprolol for a week now, should I already see results.
I am an active person (or trying to be) so this is difficult for me.
Metoprolol could be the culprit for you symptoms, but if they're not getting better off the medication, then it may be something else. It's possible that you're having bouts of Afib causing your symptoms, or that your heart is weaker, or you have pulmonary hypertension, or that the valve is leaky. If you haven't had a post operative echocardiogram, then you definitely should. It would also be reasonable to wear a Holter monitor or Event monitor to see if you are still having intermittent Afib.
