Oh, BTW, I'm 68 and male.
I would definately report this to your doctor. It could be new heart medications that you were given after the heart attack (I know some of my heart meds do make me dizzy). I can't imagine it being the colectomy, unless there is some internal bleeding.
Again, I strongly urge you to report this to your doctor.
