RETURN OF AFIB 2 YEARS POST ABLATION
Hello again, everyone! It's been a fairly long time since I've been here, only popping in once in awhile to offer some support. Now it's ME that once again needs help. I had an ablation a little over 2 years ago for PAF. The procedure was deemed a success and for the past 2 years I have been blessedly free from AFIB with only the occasional PVC. Last night about 9pm, I had an AFIB episode that lasted about an hour. I'm sure I don't need to tell anyone here how frightened I was! After 2 years I had ALMOST forgotten how horrible AFIB is. As you can also imagine, today I am feeling extremely anxious and while I know it's not good to focus on every little sensation, I can't stop. The episode, as I said, happened last night and have had no further episodes. I will be contacting my cardiologist today, but I'm just wondering if 2 years is pretty "average" for an ablation to "hold?" Would love to hear from anyone who has been in this boat! I am VERY scared! Thank you all so much.
