Great to hear! I wish you all the best.

Wow! 3 hours that is great! So glad they got it. I bet you feel like a world of troubles has been lifted off your shoulders. Good luck with your recovery. Looking forward to hearing your full story.

Only 3 hours? That's great. They must have found the troublesome area pretty quickly. I just have to ask: did they give you a turkey sandwich while you were in recovery? So many of us get a turkey sandwich afterwards. I've had the same thing 3 times now. It's almost funny.

Rest up. Take care of your groin.  LOL  It may be tender for a few days so don't go jogging or doing yoga. That will happen soon enough.

I don't know about Tom, but after my ablation and cath/implant I got turkey samwhiches both times hehehe

I had a choice of turkey or chicken salad. I chose a really bad chicken salad sandwich. It was soooo good!
1423357 tn?1511089042
Thanks for your good wishes.  I really appreciate it!  Feeling great today except for the dull ache in the right leg.  But it'll subside.

Congratulations Tom and welcome to the club. I am so glad everything went well for you, seems all the good luck vibes were heading your way on Tuesday...I am curious did you play the lottery tooo?.....lol I know I would have with all them vibes coming in ;)

I had lasagne with a salad after my ablation, went down really well...YUM!
Mix that with a nice cup of tea and a cognac (hubby had the cognac) and I was well pleased.
I was about 4 weeks with regular PVC's that got later and later in the day and one short run of SVT. I was then about 10 days PVC free and feeling good, then caught a strep B infection and the PVC's returned but not so much. Gonna have a chat with cardio on 27th to see if he needs to go in again.

Take care Tom and relax (I know easier said than done)
