I had ablation number 2 on Monday evening. It went well I am told....there were reconnections around the pulmonary veins and atrial flutter had returned. The EPs are confident .! Had TOE whilst under the GA.
The following day my stomach was uncomfortable as was my chest area and that discomfort is reducing. Groin comfortable too!!!! Overall i feel quite well apart from tiredness after a couple of sleepless nights and the GA.
I am to continue taking flecainide and bisoprolol for 3 months....as well as the rivoraxaban.
I did have a couple of anxiety attacks in recovery and in the middle of the night.
I was driven home yesterday....and about 6pm I felt strange sensations of quite violent extra beats...I have to admit I panicked and the upshot was several hours in my local A and E. I contacted the EP who did the ablation and he reassured me this can happen during recovery.It did stop after about 4 hours. And returned this afternoon and still having these extra beats.
Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it last?
I think I have to just rest!!!!
