Post ablation pee: Discuss with your Dr. It is not uncommon for tachycardia to increase peptides form the heart called natriuretic peptide. They make you pee out salt and water. This also can occur while the tachycardia is going on. It you had prolonged tachycardia you may have been in CHF from tachy and you retained salt. When CHF is stopped one pees like crazy for awhile . Discuss with your Dr Knows you best.
