Not that low, but my HR floats around 50-60 when I'm reclined and resting, makes getting up quickly a bit tough as my blood pressure is also a lot lower than it's been, hopefully it's something my body gets used to, but for now, I have to take a moment almost every time I get up from the couch.

I'm over 3 years out and this is still an issue for me. I got off my BP meds two weeks post-op and in a weird twist of fate, after 20 years of avoiding sodium, I now have my doctor telling me to increase my sodium levels. I actually have a salt shaker at my desk at work. Something you may want to talk to your doctor about.
