It's been almost 2 months since my ablation (both atriums). It was a roller-coaster ride and sometimes very depressing. Body weakness was sometimes so bad that I couldn't walk to my kitchen or bathroom without stopping having shortness of breath. The pulse would race from 60's to above 100 immediately. My EP and his nurse insisted that I keep walking every day and exercise which was really scary thought. I even thought that they don't know what they are talking about. My thinking was that I would do more harm to my heart if I did so but I followed advice.
And then yesterday, all of a sudden, I walked unbelievable distance of almost 500m and then back home with only three a few seconds stops to check my pulse (on Fitbit). Today, I was able to increase that distance substantially without getting tired - breathing normally.
I am not sure about the coming days but today I am happy like a little child.
The fact is that I was prepared and learned more from you guys then from my EP.
Yes, majority is lucky without any problems after ablation but some of us go through physical and emotional hell.
So, to all of you experiencing difficulties I say to be patient for a few months. They seem to be like eternity but the light will show at the end of the tunnel.
