Hi, I just had my second Ablation in a year …. Ablation with CFAEs. Last week’s ablation lasted 10 hours and when I arrived in my room my heart rate was 68 … very normal. Sometime in the night it went to 106 and stayed there but with a normal rhythm. However, it is not my rhythm. I have an appt. to see my doctor on Dec.19th but am worried that in the meantime my heart will be re-modelling and get used to the 106 rate ..which makes me tired. Would a cardioversion convert me back to my rhythm and do no harm???
You may want to contact your doctor right away to see if you should have something done to slow your heart rate now.
