day 8 post ablation

Jun 14, 2011 - 0 comments

I had so much energy yesterday. I almost felt normal except for walking on the treadmill. I think I'll wait a few more days before I do that again. I woke up today feeling really tired. My bp was 87/54, pretty low and my hr was 70 which is good. I've always had a hard time waking up in the morning and I've been suspicious that it is because of bp that goes too low in the morning. Going to experiment with it. I did some research this morning, and it said dehydration can cause low bp. I have a tendency not to drink as much as I should. So today I'm going to drink 2 liters and see if that helps.

My heart hurts a little this morning and lots pacs yesteday. For the last two days I've had a tingly sensation that goes from my right hip area and spreads down to my knee. It could be from back problems but my back is surprisingly felt pretty good, for the most part, through all of this.

day 7 post ablation

Jun 13, 2011 - 0 comments

Day 7: I walked on the treadmill for 6 minutes this morning. I've felt pretty goood for the last two days so I thought it would be easier than it was. Walked at 2.2 mph for 2 minutes and went down to 1.5 for the rest. My right groin area hurt like I had a charlie horse. By the end my heart was hurting. I'll try again tomorrow and hopefully I can do a little more. I've also got to get back on my diet.

Heart hurting

Jun 11, 2011 - 0 comments

Heart was really hurting last night when I went to bed. Seems when I lie down, it hurts more so I got up,took an aleve and  watched a movie. Just a few sharp pains this morning. I know it's just mending. I ate some boxed pizza for dinner last night and my heart was pounding, not fast, just hard. I think it must have had msg in it and this is definitely a irritant to my heart.

I'm not quite as tired today so far. Think I'll go out and plant the carrots. (Unless it rains)

Tired

Jun 10, 2011 - 1 comments

Blood pressure this morning 90/70 and hr: 69. Woke up feeling some anxiety in my chest this morning and I'm already so tired I could go to sleep again. I had a restless night  sleeping with my heart hurting in certain positions. I know it's all part of the healing process. I was wondering which pathway in the AV node the electrical usually took, the slow or fast, before ablation. Now it has to go down the fast pathway because, according to my research, they ablate the slow pathway because it is safer. Another question for the ep.

Bled just a little last night from the groin site but today everything seems okay. That's a relief.
