The recovery depends on you. Is this your first ablation. If it is I was back on my feet after 2 weeks. Once the wounds heal on your legs, ask your doc, but it shouldn't be much longer than 2 to 3 weeks.


Good luck with your ablation, hope it works.

I was back to work in a couple of days but there was a restriction of how much weight I could lift. So no lifting 40 lbs beavers out of the swim tank. Just ask your cardio how long before all restrictions are lifted.

My ablation was better than i thought it would be. they suddated me and i only woke up a few times during surgery for ten seconds or so. my legs were very sore. i am haveing chest pain, and my SVT is still there. I get my rapid heart beat everyday it seems like still. what could this be? has this happend to any of you? I am getting a heart monitor sent to me that i will be wearing for 30 days. The doctor told me that my heart could still do it for a while.

it took me a long time to recovery from my ablation. I went into it thinking it was going to no big deal at all and was in for a rude awakening. Not that I wouldnt do it again, but I could have gone for a bit more preparation on what to expect after. It is expected to have increased arrhythmias immediately after the ablation due to the trauma of the procedure to the heart. They should decrease over time. I ended up with pericarditis following my procedure, which has caused me some difficulty. I had mine done in October of 2008, and have only only had a few bouts of SVT since. I have since developed new arrthymias that i will probably need to have an ablation for soon. It sounds like you are experiencing what is normal following an ablation, but keep in contact with your cardiologist if you are concerned. Good luck to you. I hope things start to settle down soon for you.
