    Question SOB and sinus tachycardia 2 weeks after ablation

    I had an ablation on the 11th (almost 2 weeks ago). They picked up atrial flutter and burned an "extra pathway." They put me on blood thinner for 30 days (xyralto). I suffered tachy episodes for years that would raise my bp and just made me extremely ill. They would happen out of the blue & land me at the ER. I was put on heart medication which kept me out of most episodes but made me feel like I had no life. Before the ablation, I noticed a shortness of breath with exertion that would make me go sit down for a while. The hubby and I went to Florida and i just could not keep up at all. I was extremely drained. We left Epcot after an hour because I became extremely fatigued. I have not been on heart medication for over 2 weeks and 2 days now. While outside a few days ago, I became SOB and had to come back inside and just rest. I did notice my heart rate was climbing to about 126. Yesterday, I began to get some dizzy and nauseated. The heart rate went to over 135 and it did come down but only to about 116 at rest. I felt ill, SOB, & nauseated, so hubby took me to the ER. My bp was elevated, 152/97 and I had sinus tachy but my EKG was normal and all blood work was normal, so I was allowed to go home. This felt similar to the episodes before I was placed on heart medication. I am 47 and want to add that I had 2, 10-20% plaque in LAD (widow-maker) in 2008. I have passed yearly stress tests. Can someone comment on this in the aspect of: Does this mean the ablation did not work? Could this be from surgery & healing? In the back of my mind, I worry about that mild CAD. I guess no one knows what the blockages are at now but I passed my stress test a few months ago. I hate the thought of going back on heart medication. I just want to be able to travel without fear of going into episodes. I know that getting out of breath isn't normal. My lungs are fine. I was in complete perfect health until 2008 and that's when I had a gallbladder attack that led to arteriography & heart issues that never seem to end. I pray to be normal. Much respect to all for any suggestions.
