I am a 65 year old female who had an ablation 8 days ago. I was back in AFib before I was dismissed from hospital, but it has since reverted to normal rhythm. I am still extremely fatigued, no zip or drive to do anything.

A couple of nodules were found on my thyroid during testing prior, so my EP said to bring it to my PCD's attention. I happened to have a 6 mo checkup with my PCD yesterday and after lab work, he said I had a hyper thyroid..said it was complicated because thyroid probs can cause an irregular heartbeat and many of the other symptoms the same as AF. I did have more Bloodwork done but no results yet. I will have a thyroid scan in 2 weeks and go from there. So I now wonder did the thyroid cause the AFib or did it show up on its own? I am also anemic with low hemoglobin since ablation.

Is there a light at the end of this tunnel? The worst part is not feeling like myself. Was hoping a successful ablation would snap me back to my old self.

definite light. haemo levels do drop and come back up. common after surgery, me as well. thyroid, most likely separate. abalation most likely okay, hyper thyroidism will make you feel fatigued. i wish you well with your tests and bloods. check ya iron levels, mine were seriously low and i initiated ferracor. low iron makes ya feel weak and fatigued. take care. one day at a time. let us know how you go.
