had my ablation done last October. The ablation was done for flutter and A-Fib and they were both fixed succesfully. I had no episodes till last Monday, 10 months post-op. I had fast heart 155-160 BPM for 2 hours (that is 2 hrs from when I became aware of having heart race), it would drop to 100-110 for about 2 seconds and shoot back up to 1555-160.
Went to emergency room. By the time they hooked me to an EKG, it stopped. Contacted the Dr. office the nurse ordered a monitor to wear for a month to investigate.
Since the ablation I have been haveing RHR of about 85-90.
When excercising my heart can only go up to no more than 137 and sometimes 150's. This concerns me! Has anyone else had RHR of 80's to 90's after ablation? Will is stay with you for ever?
The last time I saw my EP was about 6 months ago, (5 months post op). I was told to come back for a follow up a year post op. Alos, I have not been put on any meds for the fast heart rate. No beta blockers or any other meds for the heart.
The nurse is aware of my situation and said I will have to wait and see the doctor after a month, after wearing the monitor so he knows what is going on. But, I am still very curious and concerned and would appreciate your help!!
