I had an ablation for Atrial Fibrillation in May of this year, for me, recovery took about 8 weeks for me to feel back to 'normal' - everyone is different of course, my procedure, under GA, took 5 hours and he did over 100 ablates, this, I feel is why my recovery was seemingly slow - so in a nutshell.
No episoded in May, June and July, then they came back in August, culminating in 21 episodes in September (worst than before the op) they put me on the emergency waiting list which meant I would be operated on again this week.
At the beginning of October my GP reduced my thyroxine, now whether it was that, or my heart remodelled itself to work properly because of the op, I am now down to 4 episodes a month, I feel fantastic and have never been fitter
- sooooo when I went in this week to have the op my consultant opted not to do it again.
So, you should give yourself more time to heal, I was told it can take 12 weeks for your heart to properly heal. Am sorry to read about your complications post op
and hope the next bit of your recovery goes without a hitch.
Please keep us posted on your progress.
