Four weeks now since my ablation. First couple of weeks seemed fine apart from a few minor flutters and the feeling that my beats were a bit strange. I had complete rest for two weeks. Then after pottering around the house and one or two very short walks, began to get more flutters and some very fast heartbeats which did not last long. During the night whilst in bed my heart rate increased then returned to normal on a few occasions and still does this. Two days ago in the shower I had a very fast beat experience and thought I was going to black out. After a short rest I recovered however have felt drained and generally unwell since. When I have the flutters sometimes it is accompanied by a fluttering sensation below my adams apple.
I have been treated for Angina for ten years and before the ablation there were two attempts to fit a stent as one of my main heart arteries is completely blocked. Both attempts were not a success as the blockage was too severe. My consultant decided to treat the AF before deciding the way forward with the blockage.
I have been wondering if the blockage may have any bearing on the AF.
My next appointment with the consultant is in two months, however due to the present situation I hope to see her much sooner.
I take 2.5mg Bisoprolol, Plavix and Warfarin and have been taking the Bisoprolol since being diagnosed with Angina and Arrythmia. I must say that I do not have much faith in the Bisoprolol as it makes me feel so tired and lethargic and does not seem to have been a success in my case.
I recently discovered this site and have found it to be of great help and I now get an idea how many people are stricken by this condition.
Regards to all.
