Hi All,,,,,, I haven't posted for a while - busy getting on with my life! However, it is now a year exactly since my ablation and I thought I would let people know how I have got on. In the end it took six months, in my case, until I really started to feel back to normal.... with monthly ectopics and occasional atrial tachycardia. I also had some afib runs in the first three months. These events have got shorter in length as time has gone on.... but I now try not to get overtired, or drink too much coffee.... and keep alcohol consumption to a small amount. No real problem, as I never drank much of either before. [Of course this is all personal to me.. so it is no guarantee that others will take so long or have to avoid stimulants!] However,... an interesting point. I complained to my lovely GP at the six month stage, as I was getting impatient with the ectopics.. and asked him how long it would take to recover altogether. He smiled and said.... 'a year to 18 months.'
'What... to recover from an ablation?' I queried. He smiled again and said...'No .... everything....' :}
