Hi everyone ,
I'm new to this and looking for a support group .
I had my first ablation on November 2015, felt a few palpitations and some pac's for about a week and then was great for 15 months although I was still on meds ..... decided to have a second ablation on feb 2017 to see if I could get off the meds , had it done and felt great for 1 1/2 months .... had nothing not even a PAC .... then on April 3rd all hell broke loose and ended up in ER with afib or flutter , I was converted twice and once converted on my own .
Anxiety and stress came into play as I was devastated that the ablation didn't work .... I was a complete mess , waited to see my EP at the 3 month mark and then he got me in early for a 3rd ablation which was June 21st 2017 ..... I'm now 4 weeks post ablation and I have stomach issues and I still have the burning in my chest as well as a heart rate of 76-87, but I am on 100mg metoprolol a day + propafenone .... the pain comes and goes . I wonder if I wasn't on beta blockers if my heart rate would be thru the roof ?? Just scared and worried that I'll never feel normal again . I know I'm only 4 weeks in and my heart is very angry from having 2 ablations in 4 months ....... feeling very frustrated!! I'm from British Columbia Canada
