Hi, I am reading all the posts on this forum every day prior to my ablation on Tuesday and the more i read the more conflicted i am about having it. It seems that having an ablation has been positive for the majority of people, but is my AF really bad enough to spend the next 2 weeks doing nothing and the next few months recovering. I have flutters daily and the odd bout of palpitations, I am scared to go in feeling "well" and come out feeling awful. I have a busy working life ( I am a counsellor in private practise) and home life ( have 2 teeenage children) and stopping work for longer than 2 weeks is not ideal. I exercise by going to pilates and yoga classes and i imagine that this will be out of the question for a few months. I am hoping that after 2 weeks of rest that i can resume some sort of "normality", is this just wishful thinking?
