Ablation done 5 days ago for a Fib and flutter. I have had palpitations every day lasting from a few minutes to many hours and very bad headaches which I never had before the procedure..Is cardioversion only done for persistent rather than paroxysmal Fib.I know it’s a blanking period but it’s so disappointing.The first 12 hours post ablation were awesome .I was on a high and felt so great.I was on atenolol 25mgm pre ablation and wonder if some of these symptoms are withdrawal from the beta blocker

I hope this gives you reassurance.
