Hey everyone I was wondering if someone can offer some guidance or some positive words. I had my pulmonary vein ablation for SVT and afib 2 and a half years ago. I haven’t had any SVT in the past year and a half. Today I popped SVT for 25 minutes and it resolved spontaneously. Is this ok or do y’all think I will need a repeat ablation? I would appreciate some guidance. I’m really feeling down and depressed. I thought I was cured. And I don’t take any meds besides aspirin daily.

Try and forget about this episode. Multiply 2.5 x 365 x 24 x 60. That is how many minutes you have been free of rhythm problems. Then divide it by 25 the number of minutes you have had rhythm problems in the past 2 ½ years.
25 minutes is a tiny blip and whilst uncomfortable and worrying for those 25 minutes I think it most likely that it is an isolated incident.
There would be absolutely no justification for another ablation unless it suddenly becomes much more of a problem.
My last ablation was nearly a year ago and I had a 5 hour episode of AF in March otherwise I have only had Ectopics. I am looking at this situation in a positive light.
Just relax and get on with your life.
