I am 22 years old, 5'4" and weigh 145 lbs. Monday I had a reduction and she took about 500 grams per side. My blood pressure in recovery was 148/98 but got down to 130/80 before they released me yesterday. In the hospital my pulse was 112, which it still is today out of the hospital. Is this a problem? I feel fluttering and can sometimes hear my heart in my ears. Im not sure what to do. I am a recovering addict so I declined strong narcotics, I am on ultram 3x daily, motrin and tylonol. Thanks
Pulse High Two Days Post Breast Reduction, is This Normal?

Concerns about Heart Rate after Breast Reduction?
Congratulations on having undergone the breast reduction procedure.
Concerns about vital signs ( for example high heart rate) are much better addressed by your surgeon. Online consultants are not in a position to provide you with accurate diagnosis, treatment recommendations and/or reassurance.
