Recent Ablation

Hi all just got out of hospital after having an ablation yesterday at 9.00am.

Got home today felling a little weak and tired.

Having minor palpitations but I'm putting this down to the new ablated heart and waiting for the scar tissue to harden?

Feel a little shortness of breath when I do move around to quickly and have a few aches and pains in the chest area, but on the whole feeling ok

Still on all previous meds for the next few months.

Well done. Not surprised you are feeling a bit weak and tired, you've had a busy day! Now switch into slow living for a week or two and listen to your body.

Good health and good luck.

"Dr" Bob's instructions . Do nothing for the first week and not a lot more for the second and then gradually ease back to normal. . It will take at least three to six months for your heart to fully repair itself after this procedure so don't be worried of you have some oddities along the way.

Relax.

Bob

Sometimes I think AF must be sent to us to learn patience. I had plenty before but I learn every day. I've had AF shortly after my op in January and again last week when I stopped the tablets. The healing may be quick but also can take some time. It's not quite like when you have some other operations which resolves instantly a problem. Good Luck with your healing.
