hey! i had a catheter ablation, early april so around 4 months ago for superventricular tachardiya as a result of wolff parkinson white or WPW syndrome. i have rarely had any palps and no svts up until the last 2 weeks or so were ive felt very breathless and my heart has palpitated in a way asif its about to go into SVT but cant quite do it! (if that makes sense)... is this a sign that the catheter ablation has been unsuccessful or am i still in a recovery period? really dont want SVT to return!!! any one had the same sort of experience after ablation?!! xo

I'm very sorry about all your troubles.  Some people have to be ablated again, but there are other treatments. Please do make an appointment to see your cardiologist as perhaps medication would help you avoid needing further ablation.

I got the ablation procedure a little over 2 weeks ago now (7/6/12) and yesterday I had a rapid heart beat for about 5 seconds then stopped. Then 3 more times throughout the day it felt like I had a single hard beat if that makes any sense. I was short of breath till about lunch time. Is this normal? I heard that depending on how the ablated areas heal that they could form back and have to be ablated again. Has anyone else heard this too?
