Hi everyone, I had my second ablation on 3rd March . My previous ablation was 30th August last year. I have felt different this time. Initially terrible aching soldiers and back, so painful, my consultant said that would be because he had burnt all across the top of the heart. First few weeks I had a few funny rhythms, fast and missed beats on and off only occasional, all expected. After a few weeks a strained feeling in chest, sore and warm and sometimes icy. Then I would get few flutters or thuds but all feeling much gentler than before. Have been feeling optimistic as overall things were a lot quieter than before. The last few days missed beats and thuds have returned and my heart rate has been varying from 60 to 104, 98/104 today, I feel exhausted. Feeling disheartened as I was beginning to think it had worked this time. I am not sure if it has returned or heart is still settling. I must mention that I am under a lot of stress and have been for the last couple of weeks as I have been told my mum is in her last days or weeks and have been keeping vigil. Not all day but 4 to 8 hours a day. Don't know how many of you believe stress can be a factor or could it be it has t worked again. Sorry for rambling on and on but thanks for any advice. Fiona x
