I had av node ablation April 11 this year after 4 years of more of less permanent AF. Since the procedure the frequency of palpitations or ectopic beats has increased from every now and then to almost constant. There seems to be no info on how many is too many but since I have 15 to 20 per minute every minute I have almost no time for regular beats. I am constantly out of breath when walking even inside my home. Weakness and dizziness come after 15 or 20 feet walking distance. Have requested an appointment with the ep since this must be an electrical problem and not a plumbing issue as my cardio Dr explained. Really need to know if there is hope to reduce the number per minute or is this the best it is going to be. Any similar situations or words of hope would be appreciated.
