I'm 50 and I had my 3rd ablation 2 months ago. Started with the diagnosis of Flutter, ater the 2nd I was told SVT, now after the 3rd I've been diagnosed with AFib. I'm not as symptomatic as when this started over a year ago, which was devastating and the reason I wanted an ablation, but I still found myself hugging a tree a few weeks ago while I was just walking in the park. My current EP gave me an event monitor last month and then switched to a leadless event monitor, which doesn't pick up much of what's happening, and now will be sending out to me a Holter because I'm starting to feel my heart beat drop low. This only lasts no more than 15 seconds or so but will do it several times throughout a day. I'm not on blood thinners due to a bleeding problem when first diagnosed.
Am I making my condition worse by having these ablations? Or is this indicative of a worse problem than AFib that hasn't been diagnosed yet? I have no other health concerns. Does asprin have any benefit in preventing stroke? Has anyone else had more than 1 ablation and have gotten worse? I've been on many meds without much relief, but I've had some success with Fleconide as a pill in a pocket approach, although not perfect and is exhausting but grateful for it. Any new meds that might have less side effects?
Is there anything left to try? I'm a bit worried but hoping my heart will calm down sometime soon.
