I was on Atenolol also but came off it in order to get pregnant. Even though I weaned myself off slowly when I eventually stopped I had runs of PVC's and felt my heart was racing. It took a good few weeks for my body to adjust to being without that drug.
I then fell pregnant and that really made my heart take off!
I think you will notice a difference once you have had the ablation. I have had 2 in total and for me my heart always felt quite calm straight after.
Wishing you a good recovery.
Are you getting the ablation for the pvc`s? hope all is well!
Thank you - I am a little nervous but can't wait to get this done. Will post details of the ablation as soon as I'm able.
I think what you are experiencing is normal. I had to come off Atenolol 3 days before my ablation and had similar symptoms; I also had 3 episodes of SVT and couldn't wait to get into the cath lab. Best of luck with the procedure - you will be just fine ...
Thanks Tom! I'll be in touch soon to let you know how things went. Again, thanks so much for all your great advice!
Good luck tomorrow, Jannie!
I started cutting my Metoprolol about a week and a half before I went in. I felt pretty zippy being totally off of it. I did however have an SVT episode 2 days before the procedure just sitting in a restaurant having dinner. I think what your experiencing is a combination of being off the Atenolol, and the fact that you're probably amped up. Your life is about to change for the better!
