Thank you all for comforting words for my ablation last week!!
I am home now and wonder why I made all the fuss! I had a different EP for this one and the differences were worth the move and maybe methods have improved slightly in two years. I had entry points in both groins this time, no bruising or pain. Did have to lie still for several hours before the sheaths were taken out and that was painless, and gradually the bed was raised over a few more hours. I did wake with a sore tongue and still very swollen and the anaestheitist was summoned to apologise for that!
I had two nights stay post procedure and was so glad as the second night i had bit of AF and tachy for six hours. I did not cope with the upset of that very well, but it stopped and spent the second day resting before coming home. It is a common thing post ablation. If it happens agajn i have to go back to hospital.
So now doing as everyone advises. Very little for a week! I feel ok, just a bit breathlees when going upstairs slowly.
Fingers crossed it is third time lucky..EP was glad I had gone in for a redo as all four pulmonary veins had reconnected!
