Hi, I'm new here and joined because my 86 year old mother had an ablation 4 days ago. She was suffering with AF for a good number of months and medication wasn't helping. Last May she had a new heart valve fitted. Her heart rate is now steady and her breathing is way better than it was. She also seems to have her appetite back. However, she is sleeping most of the day and night. She didn't get any discharge advice from the hospital so we're really not sure what to expect. I guess at her age things are going to take a lot longer to get over and it's still very early days, but I'm after some reassurance that this is normal. Thanks.
