So, as many of you know I had my 3rd ablation back end of September. I was back to work last week via occupational health on reduced hours and awaiting my follow up with EP, and on evidence suggested pre-op I'd need "another 3 hours in the lab" for "more work on the left" once the flutter area was treated. I'd had residual flutters settle after 3 weeks since procedure.
Well, after working Tues n Weds and having the rest of the week off I was feeling OK, aside from a little tiredness (expected with being back at work and 4 month old baby)..... yet on Saturday afternoon with the place to myself for the weekend and everyone away I was moving a cabinet and coffee table and tidying up and my heart flipped out again.
I've been back on the flecanide 50mgx2 a day since my ablation, after it being stopped and accused of making the flutter worse, and my bisoprolol has been down to 2.5 from 10mg. I kept on with the apixaban.
Suffice it to say - it's not worked. Be it the flutter back, the AF rearing, or the reduction in meds. HR is currently ranging (at rest) between 110-120, and whilst it's not in the ranges of the summer of 210-250 it is still rather debilitating.
So, I'm off wok again and waiting with even more hope that the appointment next monday with my EP will bring a further plan in light of my further symptoms.
Once again, watching this space! Luck is not on my side.
