Well my 2nd has been done 11 months after the first unsuccessful ablation.
I have to say my fears and trepidation were unfounded. After a bad experience with the 1st I worried myself into a hole.
I didn't voice my concerns here because I knew the answers I would get so held my tongue.
I had the ablation yesterday and my husband drove me home from Sydney 4.5 hours away. Apart from being sore and tired I am feeling confident that this time will be the good time.
My EP stated the blood vessels had rejoined hence the breakthrough AF apparently I healed too well. He did advise that the same thing may happen again, so I expect I have to be happy about healing well just no where the heart muscles are.
This 2nd procedure was a snap compared to the first bigger one, and I guess what I am trying to say is don't fear the 2nd time around save yourself the anguish it is not worth it and the 2nd time around is far easier to handle.
