I am now two weeks after my ablation at the Golden Jubilee. It's been difficult to take it as easy as I would have liked as my mother in law who lives with us sadly died on 11th. The 1st week I was very good and didn't do much at all. But the house has had lots of activity clearing out her things along with the sadness and stress of her unexpected passing. Had some short spells of fast beats going on but nothing long lasting. I returned to work today. They only managed to ablate 3 of my 4 pulmonary veins as the phrenic nerve went into palsy on the 4th so they had to stop. The phrenic nerve recovered ok. The EP said there was a 70% chance that my PAF would be solved. So for anyone considering ablation my experience has been that the procedure itself was pain/discomfort tolerable. I have found that I felt back to normal after a week. Some extra fast beats etc now and again with a bit of weak feeling down right arm but know to ignore then as it is so soon after op but I am a bit if a worrier !
Fingers crossed for a PAF free year !
