Ablation for atrial flutter

β€’29 Replies

I'm just out the Golden jubilie hospital Scotland after having ablation for my atrial flutter and I can honestly say I've had far worse dentist treatment and that's no joking!

Fingers crossed it helps me

Just as I have been saying for years! Well done and fingers crossed for you. Take it easy for a while.

Cheers brother Bob

Thank you for an excellent post.

For me the biggest problems with the ablation were organising the travel arrangements and the fact that they were gaining access via my groin. I am sure that I would have been less alarmed if they were going in through the chest wall or wrist.

As Bob said canal root treatment is worse, and the half hour I had with the dental hygienist yesterday wasn't much fun - but at least I got to drive myself home.

Now get plenty of rest to allow the burns in your heart to heal.

Great stuff Kaiser. Hope it works out really well, mine did. Like you said, I thought the procedure was a non-event, in fact after half a day of being groggy, I felt fantastic. Went round thanking all the nurses, so embarrassing when the drugs wore off :-/

Thanks Baz

Good to hear as I am in the waiting Q. Well done that man. Onwards and upwards!

Thank you

This is such an uplifting post, I can imagine it not only puts my mind at rest but many other members as well, thanks very much for posting Kaiser78. I wish you all the best in your recovery, stay healthy....

Honestly travelbug it was over in no time, I hardly felt a thing, and I got out the same day

Hope everything goes well for you. I've not needed anything but 2.5mg bisoporol so don't know what you're going through just now.

All the best.

Great news Kaiser. To be honest, when I saw your hair, I thought that you'd had Cardioversion!..........OK, I'll fetch my coat.....

in reply to Hidden

Morning hair mate lol thanks πŸ‘πŸΌ

Hopefully I will be heading for the Golden Jubilee in the new year...hope it goes as well as yours...All the best..

Same as me, no regrets at all, I've just taken off my third holter check up after my ablation in July.

I've been in sinus 99.99% of the time since which feels great, I get a few ectopic beats, I still fell I have Afib but that it's finally under control.

I'd have another tomorrow if needed

Luv the photo. Kaiser ...


Well done hope all now stays calm. Take it easy and give it time before diving off for more excercise, I know what you men are like πŸ˜‘


Well done Kaiser keep the good work up but do listen to all the good advise given on this forum.


Brilliant! The Golden Jub is 10 mins from my house - that's where I'll be going when my time comes! Hope you keep well. Patricia.

Well done mate,

iv'e had 2 Ablations and said the same as you in past having a tooth out was a lot worse than having a Ablation
