Two weeks post cryoablation and all seems to be going to plan. In the two years prior to developing AF my heart rate dropped from a resting pulse of around 65 to the low 50s and low 40s when sleeping. Now its back up 65-70 which is pretty much where it was when I was in my 30s. Also, I used to suffer from ectopics as soon as I started any exercise, not necessarily developing into AF but it meant that I had to stop for a few seconds to let my heart catch up. All that seems to be gone which is great! If the heart rate and ectopics are symptomatic of eventually developing AF I can trace symptoms back for at least 10 years.
My post op letter from Prof Schilling said that my inter-atrial septum was 'thin and intact and quite floppy’. Not sure if that’s good or bad. All four veins were isolated but the most significant was the left upper which had quite a lot of ectopic activity within it.
Done a fair bit of walking and some easy stuff down the climbing wall last night. Long may it continue.
