Hi all. I had a successful catheter ablation in February. Following it, I no longer had a heart flutter, and my AF had also gone. My pulse was down to 55-60 bpm and I felt well.
However, about 3 months following the ablation, my pulse has gone up to approx 100bpm, regularly. I saw my GP last week, who said that it was not an abnormal heart rate (I tend to disagree!), and could offer no explanation why it had suddenly risen. I had an ECG which showed, thankfully, that I was not back in AF (my big fear!). However, I don't feel as well as I did immediately following the ablation, and I'm wondering if anyone else has had the same experience? My follow-up appointment with my EP is not until July and I am still on all the same drugs (warfarin, bisoprolol and amiodarone) as I was before the ablation.
My experience seems to be the opposite from what everyone else reports following an ablation!
