The only symptom I now get is a sort of "gap" sensation as often as a few times a day, or not at all. If I take my pulse I feel what seems like a missed beat. This can happen a few times before going back to normal. I've read that this is a "normal" post ablation symptom. Apart from that I feel 110%. Not doing strenuous exercise; just brisk walking and a few flights of stairs. Was told 30% of people have AF immediately after the ablation. I was one of those. Had several episodes with final being the longest - lasting 6.5 hours, 8 days after the ablation. In the year before the ablation I never lasted more than 8 days without needing PIP flecainide. I've now lasted 17 days.
