What to expect after SVT ablation

Good Morning!

I am new here but I underwent a cardiac ablation for an SVT on this past Friday the 27th. To give you some background, I was born with Congenitally Corrected Transposition of the Great Arteries. In other words my lower heart chamber is completely reversed. I also have situs inversus, a heart murmur, triscuspid valve regurgitation and AF.

After the SVT ablation, I felt like something was sitting on my chest and I was in pain. They ran a battery of tests but everything was okay. They said it was muscle pain. After the procedure I have been short of breath and very sore. I still feel some pvcs, and some soreness. How long does it take to fully recover?
