I am new to the forum, 58 y, moderately fit (used to swim 500-1000 metres, hike for 3-4 hours with 300-400m hills) had 10 weeks ago my second ablation for symptomatic frequent PVC (bigeminies, couplets, NSVT). First was semi-successful for 3 years.
The PVC temporarily reduced just before the ablation, but EP triggered bigeminies with isoprenilin and found and ablated focus in the left ventricle (first ablation was for the right ventricle) around mitral valve. The PVC returned during two weeks after RFA and then vanished for 5 weeks (completely - I have not had this for years and years), I was cycling, swimming and getting life back! Unfortunately - PVC returned with 16% daily load/ 30% hourly load 7 weeks after ablation (bigeminies, quadrigeminies, couplets) and increase during simple walk and loads. Now during 10th week - same - does it mean ablation fail or there is a chance the heart is still healing, especially as PVC did vanish for a few weeks?
So the key question - what is the time for healing and whether PVC can ramp up towards the end of healing? Also with this history - any hope that ablation may still work?
It is shame that those with successful outcomes less often come to the forums (that I fully understand :-)) and any views of past history are very appreciated!
