Last day for Christmas Shopping today :-D

I have my second pulmonary vein ablation tomorrow afternoon so have got Christmas sorted early, for once! I don't know if I will be frustrated not doing much or glowing because I can leave them all to it :-)

Anyhow, feeling apprehensive as I'm sure anybody would. I think I am more nervous this time than when I had my first one for some reason? I had my pre op last week when was told, again that I also had atrial flutter which could have been 'hiding' behind the AF for a while. The 2 things will be sorted apparently in one hit. I am being sedated again, not having a GA.

I am going into the Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital again where I feel very comfortable. Lovely staff, well looked after and excellent advice and treatment. I am really looking forward to my long lost friend NSR to come home for Christmas.

Wish me luck chaps, I will let you know how things go. Keep well x

Good luck Froggy, from what I understand, the flutter is relatively easier to deal with during an ablation, so I am sure they will sort you out.

Wishing the very best for you



I had my 1st 4 weeks ago and all went fine and feeling good now. As you have already had one you know what to expect but i am sure still apprehensive. However, i am sure it will all be fine - so here's wishing you the very best of luck - for tomorrow and the days and weeks ahead.



Good luck and I do admire you for being so well organised! Teresa


Good luck for tomorrow do let us know how you get on,

every good wish for Christmas!


Good luck and yes the flutter is easy as it is in the right side so no worry about going through the wall.



Good luck Froggy. Glad you've got Christmas sorted! Let us know as soon as you can how it all goes tomorrow. Will be thinking of you.



Good luck Froggy. I'd go for the 'glowing and leave them all to it', what a great time to have to sit back and takes things easy! It is now 6 weeks since mine and still feel so much better.

Hope all goes well.



Good luck Froggy. Hope yours goes just like my two, both not any problem at all, one GA and one just sedated. I was fascinated watching them do it, amazing.


Hi Bob

I must have been akward as my flutter was not corrected on the right side, they had to do both I think, I was a bit out of it when they told me.



Thank you everyone x. All went well according to the experts so hope it stays well. Feel like I have been kicked by a mule and bitten a few times in various places but the old ticker is beating normally. Had a couple of flutters which only lasted seconds so can't complain.

Can't wait to get up and about but will behave and rest! Hope all is well with everybody else x Joan


So pleased to hear that all went well. Now make sure that you take it easy for the next few weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
