Just got back from my 3.5 month Post Ablation visit with my EP. It was a very good visit and I found out some really interesting info.
In Nov 2012, they had to put off my ablation for about 3 months because they were installing a completely new EP lab and it was finished 3 weeks prior to the procedure. What I didn't know until today is that they had installed the new 3D mapping equipment. Mine was the first ablation which had been done at that hospital using the new equipment.
I also found out that my EP has worked with both Dr Natale and Dr Narayan. I was really impressed.
Ok... My plan. I was currently taking 975mg of propafenone a day and 50mg of metoprolol. For the next 8 weeks he wants me to take 650mg propafenone and 25 mg metoprolol. Then if there are no attacks, 8 weeks of 325mg propafenone and stop metoprolol. If I still have no attacks then stop the propafenone. He also says that I will be able to stop the warfarin in Feb (1 year post ablation) if I have had no attacks.
I asked why he wanted me to continue the propafenone since I had no attacks for the last 12 weeks. He said that He doesn't want any chance of the heart to develop another pathway until it's completely healed (6 to 9 months).
Feeling really good about the visit. Blood pressure down and I've lost about 33 lbs since the ablation. It just gets better from here.
