I'm 8 days post ablation. For the first 5 days, all was fine, but for the last two days, my heart rate has become irregular with extra beats and skipped beats (feeling to me like palpitations). My heart rate is around 55 bpm and I'm not feeling physically bothered at all just very anxious. Pre- ablation, I never had three days on the trot of this, so is this to be expected after the ablation, or is something amiss. I'm on no drugs except warfarin.
Is this normal post ablation behaviour? - AF Association
Hi Therealsue,Yes it is quite normal,it takes time for the scar tissue to form and you,ll probably have funny little beats and flutters over the next few months but if it gets worse and you start to worry just give the EPs secretary a ring and she,ll advise you what to do.
Thank you, argzxoni.
Agreed, it is often the heart settling post ablation... try to roll with it, so it doesn't stress you more. Give it the time necessary to heal, but stay in touch with your drs so they can provide positive and clarifying input! All the best-

My resting HR (3 weeks) post-ablation is 81.
Is this “normal”?
Just over one week post ablation and am feeling battered. Two days post-op I had AF according to...
you all know how I'm getting on as it's been six weeks to the day since my ablation.
As per my EP's
However 10 days ago my resting heart rate went up to 130. So I am in persistent tachycardia all day...
light exercise (skipping rope and light jogging). I can barely get my heart rate up to 130 bpm...
