RBBB Question

I was told 20 some years ago that I have an RBBB but it was not a big deal... nothing to worry about. It's shown up on every EKG since then. Two weeks ago I had a pre-surgery EKG and the surgeon put the brakes on. Now I start reading up on-line about RBBB, and it sounds like it can be serious. So all you who have some words to the wise....should I worry or not?

Re: RBBB Question

Hi Sanshock,
I too have been diagnosed with right bundle branch block. About 2 months ago I had a ekg done and was told I had rbbb. I guess my other ekg's from 10 years ago said same thing but I was never told of it until just 2 months ago. I also was told it is nothing to worry about. I googled rbbb and found some disturbing things about it as well. Sorry I can't help because like you I truly don't know much about it. I posted about a month ago about it and noone answered. So, if you hear of anything let me know. Thanks, mtiffany

Re: RBBB Question

sanshock, an RBBB is not necessarily a bad thing unless it is new. You say yours has been there for years. It also can potentially not be a good thing if you have underlying heart disease. Do you have that?
