What Are The Risks Of Cardiac Ablation? For Those Who Have Had The Procedure, What Are Their Experiences After An Ablation?

I had atrial flutter in 5/2011 and they did an ablation and installed a defib pacemaker (ICD) Worked great until came time to replace generator in it. It zapped me, didn't hurt , just made my whole body jump in place while standing next to hubby. Thank God we both had EMS training. I scared him half to death. LOL He has 30yrs in EMS, me, only 8 on the streets of a bad city. Anyway, just got new ICD, and now have atrial fib. Go figure, but cardio says I don't need ablation and put me on warfarin and stronger diuretics and anti arrhythmia med. Doing great now.

Thanks for responding. Glad to know you are doing very well now. I had the ablation a bit before Christmas. Have had two episodes of skipped heartbeats which lasted for 8 hours or so but other than that, I'm am recovering fine. I'm on a beta blocker and a blood thinner. Taking it easy. Blessings to you.

Thank you for responding. I did have the ablation. Recovery is coming along; but slower than I expected. I've experienced my heart skipping beats for several hours on a couple of occasions. Is that something you experienced after either of your procedures?
