12 days after Ablation back at work

Hello, 12 days after Ablation back at work gardening,

I am self employed gardener so if i don't work no money to pay bills' Heart is beating 85 to 90 a min, used to be 72 before Ablation, feeling ok would have liked bit more time off work, trying not to over do it but i seem to have plenty of energy.

Got to see thyroid specialist in 2 weeks, and still on Amiodarone till i have my review in june been on it for over a year now, would like to get off it but worried A F will come back. keep you posted on progress.

Fantastic news Higgy, I was wondering how you were rate was around 10/15 higher after the ablation, but after about 2/3 months it started to return to normal(ish)....all the best, John


Thanks Flapjack, nice to hear what happens to other people


Raised heart rate post ablation is normal. It should return to normal over the next six months or so. Just another thing they never tell you.


Thanks Bob, nice to have you back on board


Hi Higgy,

You doing great, keep it up,

Best Wishes



Thanks Barry
