Hello, I had an ablation 4 months back for my Paroxysmal Afib. I had a bit of a rough time in the month following, I kept going in and out of AF several times a day. This seems to have settled now and i haven't had any afib for a few months now. Fingers crossed it's done the trick.
However I do seem to get a lot of Atrial Ectopics, some days a lot worse that others. They seem to come in couplets, triplets (like below, the is recording from my Alivecor) or in runs for up to 6 or 7 on occasion. I don't seem to notice the single Ectopics but when they come in runs of 2 or more I get a noticeable thud as my heart ejects the build up of blood.
My question is, has anyone else experienced this post ablation?
My cardiologist doesn't seem concerned, but they do bother me sometimes. On occasion they can make me feel a bit light headed and this makes me panic and I work my self up, this seems to make them worse and more frequent. I just have to relax and tell myself it's not dangerous and will pass!
I'm just hoping that over time they will subside along with my contanst anxiety about having them!
