Hi all, I had my first ablation 7th September, it's now 2 weeks so I thought id post an update for those interested in this procedure. Groin entry site is completely healed, I have extensive bruising which is slowly starting to fade.
My heart has not been as I would like but I know this is early days. My resting pulse was 55 ish prior to the procedure, it went up to 85 and now sits around 68-70. I am still getting many palpatations and some runs of AF, the palpatations are always triggered by not being sat still i.e any walking or slow accent on my stairs is mostly accompanied by flip flopping of my heart. Even though I know its early days I do find it quite demoralizing but I keep telling myself this will improve.
My main concern is my heart has had a problem with all activity since a stress test on 2nd August this year, add the ablation in the mix and I suppose it's been through a right kicking. I'm off work for 6 weeks minimum (HGV driver) I'm resting, eating healthy and BMI of 22.5, doing all I can. Fingers crossed I will be able to make a more positive report in the weeks to come. Have a good weekend all... Dave.
