Recovery for ablation

8 day ago i was treated for verapamil sensitive vt with a  catheter ablation. My doctor said the ablation was a success, but as of right now I am unable to walk because my left leg won't straighten out( there is slight pain). Is this normal. My Doctor told me I could return to normal activities 5 days ago but i am barely walking. Plz help.

I would contact your doctor about your leg, it is possible a nerve was hit but you should get it checked out.  My leg healed pretty quickly.

As Michelle indicates,  this is not normal. After 8 days you should be walking with only a little pain.
