Been reading this board for several weeks and want to thank all of you who take the time to answer questions and make helpful comments and send out encouragement. Only regret I didn't find this site sooner. Could have really used the reassurances during the very difficult and panic stricken first weeks post surgery. Am now about 15 weeks out and feeling most of the way back. There have been times when my current cardiologist reacted as if I was nuts thinking something was related, only to come here and read that it's not at all uncommon. Like the optic migraine vision issue. So thank you all so much. Just one question for the moment. How long on average does one stay on Metoprolol?
