I'm now 10 weeks post ablation. For the past couple of weeks, I have experienced a great deal of jumpiness with my heart. I was getting frequent clusters of PVC's a short little runs of svt almost daily. These happened all at rest an not during sleep or while under physical exertion. I'd get them while working at my desk, or watching TV in the evening. Then yesterday, they disappeared! I've been free of PVCs now for over 24 hours. This is great news, but ever the pessimist, I need to wait before I get happy. I pushed the envelope yesterday drinking well over a quart of iced tea throughout the day. I was wired beyond description last night. 8-)
So this will be my last journal entry, unless something significant occurs. I hope that writing down my experiences will help those who are facing this procedure get a better understanding of what to expect, or what they will go through from planning to long term recovery. If by chance you read this, and have a question on the procedure, please feel free to contact me by email. I will answer as quickly as possible.
