Low BPM now.



Recommended Posts

I have reached my goal weight. Combo of being a hard core follow the diet, walking, rucking, weighty lifting, sword fighting martial arts, and running. This year, I am running particularly better that last fall. Faster, and better form. A 38 min 5k to a decent 31:30.

Now, I have a low BPM of 42. 6 months ago it was 60. I happened to met another physically active bariatric patient, and he has a 37 BPM. Then, met another patient that has 45. Not barycadis. All of us are healthy, and have awesome blood pressure.

Is this a "thing" with bariatric patients after loosing a lot of weight? Is there something about having better blood flow or something?

Wow! Congrats to you hon! That is soooooo impressive! So excited for you about your success and for being active and healthy!!

Mine was 45 in the hospital this past Friday before surgery. I "rawlk" (run slowly at 3mph LOL *snick*) for an hour+ per day plus do core exercises 2 x per week.

The doc said if I'm not symptomatic then no need to worry.

The only thing I do have is my ankles/feet are swelling (they think from venous insufficiency from the weight loss), but also sometimes my toes and balls of my feet ache tremendously (beyond my neuropathy from chemo).

Do you have any toe aching or discoloration or swelling in your feet or toes?

I think it may just be a "thing" with bariatrics who are active?

Will be interested to hear from others!!

People in good cardiovascular health will have lower BPM. Congrats on getting healthy!!!

Lower resting heart rates indicate more efficient heart function and better cardiovascular fitness. In fact, an athlete's resting heart rate may even be as low as 40 beats per minute.

Asymptomatic sinus bradycardia after WLS (GOOGLE it). Nothing to worry about. Pretty normal.

I'll have to Google that.....

No discoloration on ankles or calfs. If anything less color than pre-op. I had what the surgeon said was 'iron staining" from poor blood circulation.

I think I am going to get an inexpensive heart rate monitor.that is worn around the chest for better accuracy than the notoriously bad wrist-watch.monitors. At least for when I go jogging.

Consider getting orthopedic insoles. Maube5 they can help.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
