Firstly thanks to everyone who wished me well for this procedure. And, seasons greetings.
Now in my 5th week after the ablation and feeling quite well. Wounds healed well. I have had a couple of episodes of 'short beats' for a few hours at a time but this has not occurred for about 10 days now.
My cardiologists says that these are atrial bigeminy and not too much to worry about. He is not sure if they will disappear but assures me that they are unlikely to spark AF.
On the 'cautiously optimistic' side, I will remain on amiodorone for another 2 months. So, I won't be sure about the overall impact of the maze procedure for another few weeks.
Keeping my fingers crossed but not getting too excited as I have been disappointed in the past when AF returned following catheter ablations when amiodorone has been removed.
