Post PVI Ablation

Two weeks ago, I had a PVI ablation for Afib and a WPW ablation for an accessory pathway. On the seventh and eighth day after the ablations, I experienced several bouts of palpitations. I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience and, if so, was it determined after the blanking period that your ablation was a success or did you have to have another one. Also, last night my heart raced a little because I had a frightening experience. Now, I'm worried that getting scared and having my heart race could have damaged the healing process. Do I need to worry about this?

  • I suggest that you resubmit this post on the AFA forum. I understand that it is usual to get for 3 to 6 months after ablations (and I did after mine) although I went back into persistent AF less than 72 hours later.

  • Thank you for your suggestion. I'm new to HealthUnlocked and appreciate the advice. I'm sorry to hear that your persistent AF returned. Possibly, a second ablation?
