I HAD TWO ABLATION PROCEDURES ONE IN OCT 2OO7 ANOTHER IN APRIL 2008. SO FAR I AM ABLE TO JOG WORK OUT AND BIKE RIDE. I AM 54 YRS OF AGE AND IN GOOD SHAPE.
MY QUESTION IS IT POSSIBLE AFTER TWO ABLATIONS TO HAVE ANY MORE EPISODES OF ATRIL FIBULATION?
Yes, it is. Unfortunately, there seems to be a recurrence rate for arrhythmias, even years after an ablation. A recent article showed a 5 year recurrence rate of almost 30% (after tx for SVT - some developed afib).
My husband had an ablation a couple of weeks ago and yes the flutter has returned but not as bad. Seeing his specialist again for another ablation. The problem is he needs a hip surgery asap. What is the outcome of having surgery when heart it in AF.
I do not think there is any special concern about surgery when suffering from AFib, other than a short period of increased blood clot risk due to having to come off of all aspirin and anticoagulants for a period of time.
Even a simple colonoscopy requires getting off of aspirin and anticoagulants if they are being used.
