In a routine test today my resting heartbeat was 110. Sort of high. One week out of surgery and when I see my surgeon tomorrow i will mention it. Any reasons?

First thing I thought of was infection. How's your body temperature?

No temperature. Feel great otherwise.

I had 120 bpm, but I was not getting my liquids in. Are you feeling dizzy or sluggish at all? How is your blood pressure?

Thought I am getting me water in. Could be the problem. I do a little dizzy when I get fast after sitting awhile. It goes away quickly though.

Likely dehydration. It'll get better as you can get more fluid in.

There is always a chance it can be some anemia, depending on how much blood you lost during surgery. But I would put money on good old fashioned dehydration!

Hope you feel better!

Yes mention it. Fast heartbeat can also be a leak, though it is usually combined with a fever.
