It is almost six weeks since my ablation and I was ticking along nicely or so I thought. Apart from a couple of episodes of fast palpitations within a few days of my ablation my heart had been behaving itself. My INR level was coming up to almost 2 and I was beginning to relax. When all of a sudden while sitting quietly at work today I suddenly got palpitAtions of about 115. I got an ECG done at my doctors surgery where they said I was in NSR if there is such a thing at that speed. There was no atrial fibrilation present which is reassuring but couldn't give me a reason for the fast heart rate. I just hope I am not getting another heart problem. My check up at Papworth is booked for mid October so I will take all my ECG results with me then. I am going on holiday on Sunday and plan to relax and not worry Easier said than done though.
