I am 3 weeks after an ablation and I seem to be getting worse again.  I am starting to have more palpatations.  I have that burning feling in my chest with pressure if I start to feel emotional and hold it back.  That is what used to cause me to faint.  Has anyone else experienced getting worse before getting better from the ablation?

Hey there, from what I know through working with cardiologists it is not unusual for the heart to act finicky in the few months after the procedure.

It would be a good idea to give your doctor's office a call just to be sure he/she is aware of what you're experiencing.

I am sure you will be hearing from other members that have had the procedure.

Take care and Happy New Year,
