I haven't posted for a while, but I have been about, reading your posts. My ablation six months ago as you know went well, other than a sore throat, diaphragm and a bit of acid reflux following my cryo ablation there were no problems. I was signed off by the EP after three months, told to say on wararin and given an emergency contact number should I need it.
I've had a few bumps and jumps in the last six months but no bag of frogs in my chest and slowly, ever so slowly my fitness has improved. Bowls has become my exercise of choice, I play 3 times a week along with walking the length of the beach at Weston.
Today however I was issued a challenge....climb up the steps on Brean Down!!!! Now for those of you who don't know the West Country these steps rise approx 300 ft straight up, from bottom to top and follow a zig zag pattern up the hillside. So with much trepidation I accepted the challenge, I took my time, rested frequently and completed the challenge.
No problems since, no uneasiness in my chest, I just feel deep sense of satisfaction.
So for those of you who are waiting for your ablation, or have just had one.... There is a life out there, just take your time recovering, dont push it, you'll know when you're well enough. And for me? I'm off to Portugal after Christmas, (travel insurance cost £18 this time) there's a lovely bowling green right on the sea front, I plan to play every day and when I'm not playing I'll be walking the coastal paths.
Life after ablation isn't so bad !!!!!!
