Four months after my surgery now, I've been doing minor weight lifting with super light weights, light biking up to 10 miles, frequent walking 3miles and doing really good.
Then come this past Saturday night I decide to do a series of upperbody weight lifting for 2 hours. All with lighter wieghts. These past few days I've been experiencing chest pains (hopefully muscular/skelatal) and I have been recording higher BP at night so I have just been taking it easy.
I've also started on some Hibiscus tea because I would like to see my BP numbers down from where they are. I've put my heart through enough trauma with the Dissection, no need to ever make it worse. The surgeon said my heart was tough (as in not soft), but that it should not get worse, well you know as long as I take care of it.
In the AM upon waking up my BP is down but my diastolic levels are still higher than I would like.
