I had an ablation done 3 1/2 weeks ago for symptomatic pvcs in bigeminy. I would get short of breath and light headed. This would happen as soon as I stood up.

I was told after the procedure that I had a strong heart, they saw no blockages, but the location they had to ablate was in a tough place to get to. They also explained that I could continue to have some PVCs while my heart tried to readjust.

Now that I've had the ablation, my resting heart rate range is 74-80 (prior to procedure it stayed high to 60s to low 70s even with minor activity)but as soon as I stand or walk it jumps to 100. It did not do this prior to the ablation. Is this normal? Is this dangerous in any way? I'm still on the same dose of medicine.

History
Had a halter monitor in 2007 where they picked up an episode of ventricular tachycardia. I was then given a nuclear stress test and echo cardigram. All were good. I started on a low dose of bystolic and have had to increase about every 2 years. I now take 10mg 2x daily. The bystolic kept my heart rate down, but PVCs increased over time until they finally became symptomatic.

hi mish. i think it will settle. from what i am learning pvc can be quite normal. obviously not when symptomatic. since it was a tricky spot you may just need some time to recover. keep in contact with ya doc. especially ya blood pressure. others will come on with more info. welcome. i hope all works out. keep in touch.

Hello, I just had an ablation for svt on the 5th of August and I too am suffering from increased heart rate while standing or sometimes even sitting up. (Around 102-112 bpm) I never had this issue before. I'm terrified I've created a new problem. Any advice ?

My thoughts exactly Jessica. I am also still getting a lot of irregularities. Fortunately they don't last too long. I've had some days that I feel great and others aren't. They did tell me it could take a few months so here's to praying for the best.
