Hello friends. I just discovered this forum so wanted to post this question. 2 weeks ago I had my 2nd ablation. My first was 4 years ago. During this Ablation, the doctor felt very confident they had found a major source of the problem, and indicated as he burned the area, he saw my arrythmia go away.
I was just fine for 10 days or so. This morning I woke up in a mild Afib episode. My pulse is only about 70, but since I'm usually on Sotalol (both before and since the Ablation), my normal resting heart rate is about 50.
Anyway, I'm trying not to get worried about being in Afib, as it seems to be somewhat normal following an Ablation, and 10 weeks is definitely within the "blanking period" where Afib should not be considered a reoccurrence requiring intervention.
But my question is this. To those of you who have experienced this, do the episodes go and come quickly? Mine has lasted all day now, almost 15 hours. It is mild, as I said, but of course just concerning because I'm hoping it won't last long.
I am 63, in generally good health, no underlying heart disease. My first ablation kept me clear of Afib for 3 years, then I started to have fairly frequent episodes again.
Thanks for any information you can provide. Glad I found this forum.
