Hi, I had catheter ablation for SVT on Friday. I was nervous before but the procedure was fine and I did it without sedation. They did use adrenaline in the procedure to get my heart to misfire which was a strange sensation but bearable. However the recovery is much harder than I thought. I've read about some people going straight home and are back on their feet quickly. I am on day 4 and my chest is sore and tight. I had an episode of AF yesterday and can't walk far. I spoke to the nurses and they said this can happen and to bear with it, but it's not easy. Just wondered what experience anyone's had with their recovery?
