Ablation

Ablation

My doctor has suggested to have the Ablation dkne, was told I would put to sleep because it is a long procedure. I read that you are given a IF and put under but you could be awake, I am confused. I would rather be put to sleep for the whole time

Which is the real procedure?

The 3 months is correct. My 87 yo mother had one with a pacemaker just about 3mos ago. She’s gone into a fib several times but we were told that may happen in the first 3mos. While it heals.

Hi Vicki,
Can you tell me how long was your Ablation Procedure and was it a success on the first try? I read many had to go in for a second Ablation to get all of the arteries that did not respond to the first one.
Please respond so I know what to do when I see my Cardiologist next week to discuss my Ablation Procedure.
Also how long did it take for you to find out if it was a success or not? I read it takes up to 3 months to find out how the heart did in the procedure for Afib.
