First post on here but I have enjoyed reading everyone's posts and getting lots of background on my condition. Bit of background I am 56 yr male pretty fit do lots of swimming gym etc until about 6 months ago when I realised I was getting seriously out of breath and my heart rate was go way over my normal levels . Anyway after the usual tests ( Holter for a week ) and drugs ( Bisoprolol and Flecainide ) etc I ended up having my ablation last Friday at the BUPA Cromwell in West London ( Great team there ) . As you know who have experienced it is a very strange thing to go through and 6 days on the bruising on my leg is now subsiding and not really noticed to much pain around my heart . I had my first real walk about today .Just went maybe half a mile or so but even though I didn't go at a particularly great pace I noticed that my Fitbit picked up elevated heart levels for most of my walk . Just wondered if this is normal. I am trying to build up gradually and haven't real set to many targets as I accept it will be matter of time. Like to think I can get back to somewhere near where I was before fitness wise but I guess it will be dependant on how the procedure went . I have been put on Apixiban (2x 5mg twice a day ) for 6 weeks and I have another appointment with my Consultant in 3 weeks .
Just thought I would share my story
