I have been taking Bisoprolol 1.25mgs for 11 weeks since I had my AVR. On day 10 I experienced tingling and numbness in face, ear, arm, hand this has continued to happen at first it frightened me and I consulted my GP who felt it was caused by the trauma of the surgery as my body was in shock!
I saw my surgeon yesterday and discussed it with him, he states that I am on such a low dose that he feels it is not the bisoprolol it will be damage/trauma to the nerves in my neck due to the position
that we are placed in during surgery, especially when they have to put the tube down your throat !
But I forgot to tell him about the muscle weakness that I have experienced twice in my hand! Have others experienced any weakness? And do you agree with what my surgeon says about it not being the Bisoprolol?
