I have had a "second ablation" about a month ago ..the first three weeks my resting pulse rate was 70 average .Then about three weeks after the ablation bpm went to 110 and has been at that rate ever since ..I have no trouble sleeping and my energy level is very good ,feel great now except for high resting pulse rate of 110m ..Never goes up or down after exercise at all ,just constant at 110 bpm ..don't want to worry but high pulse rate beginning to give me some anxiety ..Any comments would be appreciated .
My resting heart rate was elevated for a good 3 months past my ablation. It could be nothing to worry about but talk to your doctor just to get their perspective. I'm sure your heart just needs a bit of rest.
Do you mean as to why it was elevated? No just that it seems to be a common occurrence after an ablation and that it usually settled down after 3 months. It may have to do with the healing process but I have no science to say why. Did you mean to follow up with the OP?
