My heart is gurgling after my bypass
When a coronary artery bypass procedure is performed, your heart sack (pericardium) needs to be opened. Afterwards, the pericardium is usually not closed, and for awhile afterwards your heart will "feel different". The gurgling sound probably represents a little bit of fluid between your heart and chest wall. It will disappear with time and is not an indication of problems. When you read this section on heart surgery recovery, you will probably find some other things that are similar to what you experience.
Hope this helps,
