    Hi Billyjo. Am I right in thinking you've had an ablation recently but are still a little worried because you are still getting palpitations?

      It seems to be normal for it to take a month or two for the heart to heal and settle down after an ablation. During this time it often seems like SVT is about to start. I had a lot of heart jitters, palpitations, flutters and missed beats during the first month or two but they eventually went away (or I just stopped noticing them) and I haven't had an SVT episode since.

      Hopefully you'll start to feel better every day and feel less anxious as you realise your SVT is gone smile

      Great! I am glad for you! My daughter had the ablation 10 months ago and they told her it was a success too. But she kept having weird episodes. She has a resting heart rate of 66 so when they put her on Metoprolol she felt really tired all the time. Her SVT would Spike to 240. But now it spikes to 140. So it seems they just didn't zap quite enough but I'd rather the error be on the not enough then the too much. Listen to your body and never think it's all in your head. Good Luck!
