Hybrid Ablation Procedure 2.carried out Wednesday 3 June . Admitted to Derriford Hospital, Plymouth at 8am. Admitted to ward at 2:10pm. I was very lucky to be admitted at all because during the morning Derriford went into Black Alert. Many patients who were in dressing gowns etc were told that their operations had been cancelled and had to return home. Catheter Ablation carried out under GA and I return from recovery ward to the overnight ward with the possibility of being discharged in the late afternoon. I didn't get any sleep due to the comings and goings of any hospital ward and excited anticipation of me feeling a lot better than I have for the last 12 months..I had a minor bleed from the groin entry point but that was it. I have no soreness anywhere else. I am awaiting an X-ray of the chest, as per normal where an entry has been made just below the neck and the arrival of the Ablation Team to discus the operation result with me and then hopefully home. I will update this post when I know more.
