Hi. I am 44 and was previously very fit and active and had a large PE 3 months ago with multiple clots left and right.
I have ongoing chest discomfort that is irritated with activity but heart rate is a concern the Dr's don't seem to be taking seriously. At rest its fine non stressful pottering around its around 100, after 10mins cleaning the kicthen its 130 or more and with even mild/moderate resistance on the exercise bike for 5mins or 10 press ups its 150 even up to 170.
My Echo was fine but of course I was at rest. I know ive lost loads of fittenss as I was virutually bed bound for about 6-8 weeks at home, oxygen for 3 weeks and still on morphine at 6 weeks, but I have been trying to increae my activity since and can walk for 45mins but the heart rate seems too high.
I don't want to go back in a few years time with symptoms to be told 'Oh you should never have been doing exercise at that level its knackered your heart'
Any comments and advice welcome.
