Hi, I am now 10 weeks post second ablation and still suffering from multiple ectopic beats and had 5 AF episodes. Every little thing seems to bring it on. The EP is certain a third ablation is necessary. Problem is my ectopic beats are far worse than they have ever been. I used to have about an average of 8 episodes a year. After my first ablation I had 8 episodes in two months, than a second ablation with again more episodes. Ok, the blanking period isn't over yet but EP wants to do yet another one. All faith is gone and I am feeling more depresed than ever! He told me he never had a patient who finally ended up worse after an ablation. I told him, for now, I am certain I am heading that way.
Is it normal to have so many arrhythmias after 10 weeks? There is no real improvement since last ablation. Surely I should have some relief by now?
