7 month ablation update

Good morning lovely people. Just thought I would let you know how I am getting on after my second ablation at the end of October 2017.

Glad to report no AF. In the evenings when I sit down my heart does get a bit fluttery and not sure whether this is ectopics or not. It seems regular and then it will have a run of 3 quick beats and so on.

At my 3 month check up I was told that I could stop all medication including Rivaroxiban and Bisoprolol. I stopped the Rivaroxiban and am still on 1.25 Bisoprolol as when I try and stop it my heart definitely flutters more. So not sure what to do.

I am seeing my EP on Friday and will mention going back onto the Rivaroxiban after the recent findings and ask to go on a 24 hour monitor to see what is happening.

All in all I feel pretty good and just hope I stay in Sinus rhythm for a good many years.

Hope you all have a good day. This site is still such a comfort so thank you for being there. Bella :)

All sounds quite normal and good news to me Bella. I know many people (myself included) who were still improving nine months or a year post ablation. It took me about nine months to wean myself off my drugs (not warfarin of course) for similar reasons .Sometimes one just has to do it and accept a few days misery while your body adapts. Ectopics are normal and can often be controlled with slow deep breathing. Use your stomach not you shoulders and slow it right down to six or less breaths a minute for at least five minutes. Helps not just the ectopics but anxiety as well. Stay well hydrated at all times.
