It's been 3 weeks today since my ablation and I'm feeling more and more normal. Last Friday was the first day I felt like I was really getting back on things without my heart hurting or the lightning pains. Yesterday I walked on the treadmill for almost a mile before at 2.5 before I felt like I couldn't anymore. Today I'm going to try for a mile and just build up a little each day. Reading the posts in here has helped me know what to expect on this road back to complete recovery.
One of the hardest things to realize through all of this is that the SVT is not coming back. It hit me last night while sitting on the porch swing with my husband and I was quite emotional about it. It has been with me for over 20 years and has been a part of who I am, part of my identity and it's gone. No longer do I have to have it as part of my profile.In fact I'm going to change my profile in here as SVT free!
