I had my ablation on Monday morning and on Wednesday night I had a 4 hour episode of SVT, I took two 50mg doses of flecainide one after 2 hours and another after 3 and a half hours. 30 mins after second dose I converted to NSR but heart rate stayed elevated at 80-95 all night and until about 11 the next morning.
I contacted the arrhythmia nurse who was reassuring initially and then called me back yesterday after talking to EP to say that for an SVT ablation this would not be considered a normal part of recovery. They are calling on Monday to arrange for me to have a Kardia so that if it happens again I can record it for the EP.
I am wondering if anyone has experienced this, SVT soon after a successful ablation for SVT specifically.
