my father has just had the top and middle lobe removed of his right lung due to a cancerous tumor. He is 78 and extremely fit prior to the op hence the surgery go ahead.He noe has a heart rate of 40 with no previous heart trouble post op.Doctors are now moving him to the Coronary component to Monitor this. he is also a diabetic.Would the pain medication cause this at the moment he is getting antibiotics also insulin and pain nouns intravenously.
that is a high risk operation the heart rate is low should be 60 hpm it could be the medication he is taking , that is why they moved to the other unit

A sudden fall to 40 might be either medication induced or a result of heart block. Source(s): GP for more years than I care to remember
