Had avnrt ablation 22 oct. Have had lots of ectopics ever since with at least once a day having spells of multiple ectopics. Spoke to arrhythmia nurse after 3 weeks who reassured me its normal to get all sorts for first 3 months. 2 weeks ago started to get very fast pounding heartbeat after the runs of ectopics lasting hour or so. Taking diazepam help it slow down but cannot do this too much.
Been told this is all part of healing process and the after effects change over time as the scar forming causes different irritations.
Trouble is this now is more frequent than the old svt attacks were!
I have read on here that this sort of problem can go on for many months with sone saying it took a year to settle down.
I am going to ask cardiac next week if it would help to go back onto my verapamil.
Any thoughts/reassurance would be appreciated.
