    Hi!

    I've had ablation for concealed WPW syndrome in 3rd Sept., and I had lots of skipped beats right after. I had to wear a 24h holter monitor while I was in the hospital and the docs said that it was normal and benign. I'm still having ectopics, especially after big meal or having indigestion. This I had before ablation too, but now they are more common.

    Hi, I had my ablation 4 years ago when I was 27, and I also had these skipped beats for roughly a month after. I still the literal odd few now, so from my experience yes its normal. I know it's hard not to, but dont worry too much about it.

    I had transeptal ablation on 3 spots in left attium last july. i also noticed ectopics afterwards for a couple of months. still get them occasionally. nothing to fear, although i completely understand and was also freaking out when i felt my heart doing weird stuff right after people were all up in there burning stuff and poking holes. i agree with skywalker, try not to worry, do stuff to take tour mind off of it. itll pass quickly.

    Yes, it happened to me as well. It took a while after my ablation for symptoms to calm down. the best thing to do is to relax and rest. I know its hard because the morning after when i got out of the hospital. I had to get up and cook thanksgiving dinner for 18 people even though everyone says they will be there to help they wont be and it will all be left on you. . My husband promised oh i got this but nothing was getting done. I way over did it. Word of advice don't put your self in that position.

    I suffered for over doing it for months. If your going somewhere great just rest and leave when you feel like it, but do not let people put you in my position.
