Had an av node ablation April 11 this year. After about the second week the palpitations began and have continued all day and night since. EP sent me back to cardio doctor who says they are nothing to worry about. Today cardio doc said to increase the bp med carvedilol to 25 mg from 12.5 at evening dose. Pacemaker is set at 70 BPM. Walking any distance makes me short of breath. Any suggestions on where to go from here?
Is this a normal progression after av node ablation? Do av node ablations have to be done more than once? Had hoped to be able to walk, talk, and breath at the same time.
