Hey All,

 I went ahead and had my Pericardium removed on Wed june 13th. They did a Maze procedure at the same time. Everything went well according to the surgeons. The perricardium was inflamed all around the heart and they feel was constricting it somewhat and making the afib to be much worse.

 They now hear a rub that they didn't hear before the surgery but will keep an eye on it. The pain I had before still comes and goes as well.

 I was wondering if anyone else has ever heard a rub or similar symptoms after the Pericardiectomy.

Thanks for all the input, back to the couch for mending.
