Is it normal for a doctor to cancel surgery because my heart rate was too high?
They told me I had to see a cardiologist before I can reschedule. What's up with that?

It could be indicative of a heart problem. Or it could be just nerves. They won’t operate till they know whether you have a problem or not.

Yes, its normal. If your heart rate is too high, its a risk to be under anesthetic for surgery.

This really is not the place to ask for any sort of medical advice or opinion. Consult professionals only.
Moreover, the answer to the question is really rather obvious. Why would anyone be surprised that a surgeon wouldn't want to operate on someone with an unusually high heart rate?

Medical advice ....
Apparently it is. Once again random strangers on YA are asked for detailed medical advice. Did it occur to you to ask your doctor?

They don't want to be responsible for you dropping dead in the middle of surgery.

Yes, it's normal. I've had the same thing happen to me. My heart rate was elevated just from walking from the bus stop to the hospital and the doctor did exactly the same thing.

Hearts that beat too fast are an annoyance to the entire surgical team. I suggest you apologize by sending a fruit basket, and then calm yourself the **** down.
