I am due to have an ablation for atrial flutter and AVNRT on Wednesday this week. The sheet I was given At the pre-op check said no driving for a week, no work for a week, but gave very little detail. Can you walk each day? I am currently recovering from endometrial cancer following surgery 8weeks ago. It took weeks for the consultants to decide whether to treat my heart or do the hysterctomy first. Looks like I should be a new woman for the new year. Can't wait.
I was initially diagnosed at 57 with a hole In the heart , which was repaired two years ago everything was fine for 4 months, then my heart started to misbehave and despite a variety of drugs and ever increasing doses, nothing is controlling the beats per minute.
I have a congenital heart consultant, an adult cardiologist and now en EP, but I am down to have procedure done By an EP I have never met.
Just looking for some practical advice from those who have had an ablation. I want to give myself the best chance
