I had an ablation 5 years ago and was fine until the begining of this year , I had another ablation in September as the Af had eturned I was really good for 3 weeks after the ablation then I started getting tachycardia episodes , by the 4th week I had one episode that lasted a few hours each time it calmed down on its own , but has left me with like constant missed beats, the only way I can describe it is pauses in the heart beat which come thick and fast and last for hours at a time before giving me a short break before stating again. It seems to get worse towards the evening . I had a tape put on for 7 days and the surgeon has said on average its happening 180 times a day, but is not bad enough to warrent an ablation again . Sometimes the pauses are making me feel like I am going to pass out , has anyone else experienced this after an ablation.
The surgeon wanted to put me on Amiodarone for a couple of weeks to see if that would help to settle it and give it chance to heal , not sure what he meant by giving it chance to heal unless he meant the ablation as I only had that done 10 weeks ago. or possible for the electrical problem to calm down and stop. But sadly I cant go on this medication as I have an allergy to Iodine . So that s that out of the question , now I am being left high and dry stuck on bisoprolol and omeprazole that really upsets my tummy . Any help and advice would be apreciated .
I was hoping they would do the ablation again but sadly that looks like its not going to happen , I feel worse now than I did before as at least the Af was Paroxysmal, and I did get a break from it for a few days in between. I am feeling really upsett and anxious as this really is interfering with my daily life and making me miserable .
