Hi every one, I don't appear on here much, but always follow all the other posts.
I have just had an episode of AF with heart rate of 156 having gone 15 months free of trouble since my 5th ablation. Spent Sunday a week ago digging a few post holes, obviously was too much for me and 3 hours later heart went crazy. My heart rate went back to about 80 during the night but as soon as I put my feet on the floor next morning, went back to 155bpm. This was repeated the next day. Presented at A&E and they consulted my ep/cardiologist, who insisted on a cardioversion. This took place within the hour and heart reverted to 65bpm and has remained stable since.
Had a meeting with the cardiologist, and he is treating it as a one off and I still remain on no medication other than Aspirin. I feel very comfortable now but am very frustrated that this happened. I suppose in all reality it was my own fault. What are other peoples experiences with physical exercise well down the track after ablation? Cardiologist said you can't put yourself in a shell, but I guess you have to be careful.
Look forward to your thoughts.
