Post ablation palpitations

Post ablation palpitations
June 08, 2018 10:31PM
Hi all,
Monday will be 4 weeks since my ablation. First four days - normal rhythm. After traveling home (long day), next three days with palpitations mid morning. The next two weeks - totally normal. I went back to work last week. Worked three days. One day off. Worked 8 days. Now I'm having more ectopy. It seems like PAC's and PVC's. I know they say it's normal, but I could use some reassurance. Why does it choose to act up when it does? Too much activity? This really doesn't predict outcome later?
Thanks!

Nope, you're still well within the blanking period. Bumps in the road are to be expected and they do not predict outcome. Relax, deal with them as best you can, and expect that they'll slowly diminish in the coming weeks. You're good. :-)

Hi Libby,
Easy to say but try not to worry. I had ectopic beats for first 12 months en they diminished. You are good

Thanks for your support!!
I hate taking pills and haven't taken added supplements. What's the basic amount helpful and what can I get using food only?

The ectopy immediately in the wake of an ablation is very probably just due to the swelling of the atrial tissue that results from the burns (or freezing in the case of cryo). Imagine if you branded your upper arm with a hot iron. How long do you think that would be all red and swollen? Quite a while!

Relax and ride it out.

Thanks everyone,
This weekend has been restful and my heart has quieted.
