I am seriously starting to have second thoughts about my ablation procedure now ! I have been on here over a week and I have seen a lot of people saying that they feel worse after there ablation ? It seems a lot of people are ending up with more ectopic heart beats and fast pulse rates than before they had the procedure. To be honest my EP told me they wanted to do it before it gets worse as it's harder to ablate in some cases if your in persistent AFib ? But I am very confused now as I have only had 1 run of it that I no of . However if I don't get the ablation procedure and I have another Run of AFib and it doesn't stop or it gets worse I will probably be pulling my hair out that I didn't have the ablation procedure. Has anyone on here actually had a successful ablation and not suffered with long term ectopic heart beats??? That has had PAF ? I understand that it's a rocky start after the ablation procedure for the first 3 months or so ? But has anyone actually gone on to be free of them and AFib ? I have suffered every day with ectopic heart beats for at least 13 years and the thought of having this ablation procedure and having to go from having 5/to 10 a day to a thousand or 100 a day is just not going to sit well with me . I feel like I am about to go through a very risky procedure that is going to make me worse off but stop the AFib attacks if I am lucky !!! But then leave me with other things like a rapid pulse and more ectopic beats. Sorry for the little rant , but this is were I get very confused and disappointed that my EP has not told me about all of these things. I suppose what I am trying to say is Has this procedure actually worked for anyone 1st time or second time ? And has them symptoms gone away after the procedure and your doing good ? 😕
