Hello all well back safe and sound after my Ablation yesterday 17/02
What can I say, the ablation itself really was a doddle from what I was expecting despite all the reassurances from fellow ablatees.
Had quite a long wait prior to actually going down to the lab/ward, however the lad next to me had his done the day previous and he looked fine and again assured me it was fine and that he also expecting something that, well, never materialised.
My EP said it went so well he was able to explore all areas, and on trying to induce AF after the PVI freezing was one he could not.
The worst part of the whole thing was the ice cream headache and a very slight chest discomfort.
One mishap though when I was back on the ward, say 4/5 hrs later I required the bed peeing bottle, male nurse checked my groin and said "oh that's fine you will be able to walk to the toilet" which I did, got to the toilet and that was it, blood pouring out, quickly went very faint and nauseous, they managed to get me back on my bed, but that was the worse I felt all day., eventually after about ten minutes was ok again, albeit LBP.
Anyway, back home, bar a few missed beats so far so good, EP did make the point though not to be worried if AF does apper over the next few weeks, all part of the process.
So thanks all r the encouraging posts, good luck to all In my position, and those worrying about ablation, don't, it really is a breeze, it may not cure us, but definitely as a procedure to be considered as in my case as was getting nowhere with the meds prescribed.
