Exercising after ablation?

I had an ablation for svt 7 months ago and was told was successful but had a small 10 second episode 3 months after. I only had that one episode and just left with annoying pvcs. I was put on atenolol after the ablation and i need to lose a lot of weight so I'm getting back into shape. I've been working work for 2 months now and my heart rate was sticking around 150 160 working out. Tonight i was challenging myself on the treadmill and started having a little panic feeling (i also suffer from panic attacks) and felt my heart rate and it felt way too fast. Not as fast as it use to go with svt but faster then normal I've felt with exercise. I immediately quit and started panicking and laid down and right away it slowed down gradually. It doesn't feel like it use too with my svt it use to be around 250 bpm. I'm really scared something is wrong or my svt is back. Any suggestions?

The fact that your heart rate gradually came down would suggest that it isn't SVT.  That starts and stops in one beat, one minute it's flying the next second it's normal.  I would bet that it was simply a normal response to exercise, then you got scared, which caused it to go a bit faster.  Maybe go a bit slower next time and as you gain confidence start pushing yourself a bit harder.

My father has had three ablations and refuses to slow down, wonderfully. Plays one on one basketball with the neighborhood kids at 78. Hopefully you will stabilize and become better than you were before. Scary stuff though for sure.
