Sounds like it went just as it should. Love those happy shots, huh? You're right - your heart is a bit irritated and will hiccup now and then as it heals. And seeing your heart on the screen with the wires wiggling around in there - it's like watching a science channel on TV. Hard to believe that's your heart up there. I remember seeing my heart during the first ablation. Fascinating.
You'll feel better soon and be anxious to try out the new and improved heart. Take it easy for now. Then go out and live it up.
What great news! But, you didn't mention the lovely hospital gown : )
It's amazing how weird it is to be in NSR after the procedure! Modern medicine is incredible! Yep, those extra beats are probably just from being poked and prodded, should settle down for you.
Congratulations on your ablation. Now relating back to my earlier message to you a few days back, was this an attention getter? Did the procedure and all that went with it get your attention (as it did me) and motivate you to work seriously on the other health issues?
I know it is early in the process, but how is your mental strength developing for the other battle?
hi irene,yes,i only get about 6-8 skips a day..not bad.and that is cool seing you heart on the screen!.wild..
momto3... the gown..yes! nice! hehehe.... when the nurse was feeling around for my vein in the groin i broke the nervousness by blurting out "hey what are you doing? this is only our 1st date! (laughter).then asked if she would respect me in the morning? (more laughter!) it was just what i needed to ease my nerves...i think i hated the body shave more than the gown...
