Hello and welcome to HealingWell. Also known as a cardiac ablation or radiofrequency ablation, this procedure guides a tube into your heart to destroy small areas of heart tissue that may be causing your abnormal heartbeat. Is this the type of cardiac ablation you had done ?
Variations of the procedure have evolved over time.
I've heard that 2nd CA are not unusual to get those minute areas that might have been missed originally. I have also knew a friend who had 3 ablations. Both of these cases were for Atril Fib.
When in doubt always advocate for yourself and seek out a second opinion.
I can understand your fears and the many questions you have. I am dealing with cancer and any chronic health condition brings fear along with it. Keeping you in my prayers.
