G,day @health boards
just wondering if someone may have been in a similar situation,two weeks ago I had heart ablation for AF, my heart only stayed in correct rythm for a week now has gone back to AF,same as before ablation,still waiting to hear from the specialist,my gp seems to think that he will do it again,does anyone know if this procedure can be done again so soon after the first ablation, thanks for any information anyone may have Lowan
definitely talk to your doctor but it may take some time for your heart and body to calm down from the procedure...it's a bit "irritable" at the moment and may be for some months; everyone is different. I've heard some get over theirs very quickly say a few weeks then others like me it took months for my heart to calm down; then it started right back up with VT again
good luck, hope your doctor helps you soon

... two weeks ago I had heart ablation for AF, my heart only stayed in correct rythm for a week now has gone back to AF ...
I've had permanent AFib for 25+ years. I recently checked with a cardiologist to see if an ablation could be effective in my case. He said that my heart was too enlarged for an ablation to have any chance of working. And..... If I did decide to have an ablation, it would probably take many ablation attempts, all with a low chance of success.
Prior to your ablation, did your Cardiologist mention that it may take more than one ablation, did he talk about the chances for success?
