Hi everyone, what seems to be the average recovery time post ablation please?
The reason I'm asking is because of the discharge advice I was given from the nurse.
I had my ablation on Wednesday last week and the nurse said that I would be ok to give until after the weekend and I should be fine for work on Monday, which is today.
This somewhat surprised me as I consider this to be too soon. I still feel like I'm in recovery. Should I be feeling fit and raring to go?
I was under the impression that it takes a while for your heart to heal. I certainly don't want to return to work too soon and risk going back to work too soon and reverting back into af. What's the point of the ablation if that happens.
I don't want to take time off if it's not needed but on the other hand at the moment don't feel ready to go back yet. I'm confused!
Can anyone give me their experience.
