Re: Accelerated heart rate
Well thank you for responding to my post. Since I wrote that I have found that I have a 3" x 1" pericardial cyst and not fluid in the lungs. I was referred to Mayo Clinic by the cardiologist in my area since he had never seen one this large. Mayo Clinic said it is nothing to worry about and they believe that surgery would be riskier than not having surgery to remove it. So they have put me on a low dose beta blocker to help with the heart rate and the slightly elevated blood pressure and I seem to be doing fine. I will be returning to Mayo in January or February of next year to have them take another ultra sound to see if the cyst has increased, decreased or stayed the same size. So now it is just going to be a waiting game until I am re-evaluated.
