Elli86 in reply to Jacky52

I did yes. Its not as bad as you think it’s going to be and they will explain everything you should expect to you before hand. Honestly you’ll be fine don’t worry 👍 worse bit for me was tormenting myself before hand. I’m a total wuss when it comes to having my body messed with 🤣 but was much better than I thought

I was there last week and conscious throughout. I was surprised no one supported me whilst on the table . I was put on the table and connected up . No conversation whilst it was taking place .

I was conscious throughout as well and to be fair I didnt have much conversation with a supporting nurse while it took place. I did actually look around a few times to ask for pain relief when I felt it in my jaw and shoulders. No one was near me apart from the doctor.

So you're over and out. All went OK? I had two nurses and two EPs for mine and QEH BIRMINGHAM. I think the more experienced EP was overseeing the other one. I felt that the team was excellent, they were communicative but I just left them to get on with it. They did have difficulty because of the pain response even though I don't remember much of it.

Over and out Singwell, thank goodness and thank you for asking. There was enough staff there, just when I wanted to turn to someone and say I would like more pain relief, Although it wasnt an issue as doctor requested it immediately.

Good luck had mine in March it was fine xx

Run for the hills ! 🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️ 😂

Hope it all went well I had mine done almost 5 weeks, ago at St Barts under local sedation. They were great especially my consultant Dr Finlay.

Hubby had a few ablations at Barts - you will be well looked after

Good luck ! Hope all will be well and a complete and speedy recovery.

Glad all went well. Best wishes for your recovery. Will be interested to hear as I may be doing the same in not too distant future

Hope to hear from you soon Jacky, take care and take it easy.👍

Hope it went well. I had mine 3 days ago. Feel a lot better.

So pleased it all went well Jacky. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Take care of yourself xxx

Hi Jacky l hope your procedure went well and wish you a speedy recovery

That must be a relief to have it all over with. Let us know how you get on.

Hope you are feeling well. Best wishes.

Hug coming your way 🤗

Good luck Jacky52

Hope all went well. The doctor on TVs morning live had an ablation at st barts about 3 weeks ago and he said they were brilliant (Dr Dan??)

Very best wishes.

Hope you are doing well. Take care. Rest. And don't let the Drs brush you off about any concerns you have. But sounds like you had a good place to have your procedure so Drs will treat you well.

Let us know how it went.

How did it go? I too had an ablation at Barts a few years back. Good luck and hope it works long term for you.

Hi GrannyE,

According to discharge letter all went well. Im home resting up . Has it worked long term for yourself ?

GrannyE in reply to Jacky52

I am much better than i was prior to the ablation but i am in permanent AFib again. It is not nearly as bad as it was and although i am restricted in what i can do i am able to live a life and provided i dont over strain myself all is well. Before it was really awful. Good luck

Get well soon jacky52
