I was told in Sept i had Afib, had cathedar ablation done in Nov...a couple days afterwords I was having anxiety (which I never had before) and my pulse was high...called Heart Dr office they said i would have to go to er to get med for it or my reg. dr..(my heart beats per min was much higher then before surgery...had it for 6 days .I had an appt with my reg dr 8 days after surgery & my pulse was 166 bpm..they decided to send me to the er and they shocked my heart and put me in the hospital to put me on some new meds (guess i was in A-flutter)...ever since the surgery I have had a cough (xray is normal) & I am tired all the time, and get out of breath from just walking. They changed my meds a few times and I just had a cat scan today. I had surgry a month ago..how soon will I start feeling better?? And they are having me wear the heart monitor for 2 weeks..The dr said it will take 3 months before they can tell if the surgery helped or not or if I have to have another one or not..she said 30% of people that have it need it again....I just would like to know how long will it before things get better?
