Had a second ablation at the beginning of October so it's now been two months since then. Have just been discharged from the local cardiac ward after presenting at A&E on Thursday with fast AF (thought I'd better get an ECG trace to send to EP and then go home after cardioverting spontaneously or by docs' intervention but no such luck either way!). Was admitted and eventually prescribed 5mg Bisoprolol daily, which my EP took me off a month prior to this ablation as he didn't feel it was doing much for me, but I didn't bother to argue with the cardiac consultant, thought I'd wait and see what my EP thinks.
I'm trying to hold onto the belief that all this is to be expected after the ablation, but after the 3rd prolonged episode of atrial tachycardia/fast AF (this time was by far the longest - 60+ hours) and many shorter bouts of either AF or tachy, I am finding it hard to keep the faith and am a bit despondent now.
I know this sounds like a moan but hope all you wonderful people out there will understand and maybe have a few words of encouragement to keep me sane and on the right track.
