I also had a heart ablation done exactly a week ago..mine also took four hours, I had a small episode the next morning in the hospital even though my ablation was successful and one that night..has anyone else had this happen to them? Also he gave me beta blockers to take for the next 2 weeks because of that episode in the hospital..I only took them two days after because they made me feel like crap. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else? Also my heart rate still happens to be a little over 100 sometimes...can this be far no very high episodes after that day.

I have not had this procedure but do have friends that have. Rather than not taking your medication, get a hold of the dr. Call & speak with the nurse & let her know how you felt on the medication. She can relay this to the dr for answers. Remember you were put on the medication for a reason.

Take care.

I had an SVT ablation done about a year ago. I'm not a medical professional, but I was told that it was not uncommon to experience some of the same symptoms after the ablation (elevated heart rate), because there is healing process involved. You should contact your electrophysiologist's office and tell them about the side effects that you are experiencing from the beta-blocker. There are many things that can cause your heart rate to elevate, anything over 100 bpm is considered tachycardia, but it could be related to stress, caffeine, etc. My doctor told me to be concerned if mine reaches 150, and stays that way for a 1/2 hour or more.
