I'm almost at the "3 month period" post my first ablation that they tell me can come with episodes of further af and flutters.
I had severe AF 3 weeks post for 5 days then that settled and all looked good.
However the last 3 weeks I've had multiple periods of tachycardia. No AF or flutters but in an instant my HR would jump from 90 to 120 and stay at 120 for anywhere from 1-4 days (2x has lasted 4 days then just "flips" back to 90). In itself I wouldn't worry so much but at 120 life is quite unbearable with a horrible feeling in my chest and throat. My EP says nothing in the first 3 months is of any significance and simply said if it worries me go to ER or if it doesn't just put up with it!
My base HR was 70-80 before ablation and 80-90 post (which they tell me is a good sign).
Has anyone else experienced this tachycadia "jump" periodically post ablation?
I'm now worried my hear is trying to decide whether 90 or 120 is going to be my long term norm, with 120 not being good!
Many thanks for any thoughts,
