How long do you have to wait after SVT ablation to have sex?

How long do you have to wait after SVT ablation to have sex?

Go for it: Generally speaking, if the ablation worked, it worked. Sexual activity is no better or worse than any other activity for your heart and if you go back into abnormal rhythm, you would have soon anyway. Just wait a couple of days after your procedure before engaging any activity which puts strain on the groin to avoid bleeding or oozing at the puncture sites where the sheaths were inserted. Enjoy! ...Read more

How long do you have to wait after SVT ablation to have sex/exercise?

Post svt ablation: Rf ablation requires a process of maturation wherein aberrant conduction that have been treated require a few weeks before they cease to conduct. During that maturation time frame the risk of recurrent arrhythmia remains. Many patients might benefit by continuing rate /rhythm protective meds for the first few weeks following ablation. Hyperadrenergic stimulation might provoke such events. ...Read more

Is it safe to have anal sex and for me to achieve orgasm a week after having an endometrial ablation?

Is it safe to have anal sex and for me to achieve orgasm a week after having an endometrial ablation?

No & Yes: No it is not safe to have anal sex as bacteria will find its' way into the vagina and possibly produce an intrauterine infection as the cervix is still closing post ablation. Yes, orgasm is fine as long as it is "digital" and doesn't involve anything in the vagina "natural" (intercourse) or mechanical (sex toys) such as BOB (battery operated boyfriend). ...Read more

After the nova sure ablation, when can I have sex? My nurse said 2 weeks, my doctor said 3 then on my discharge papers it said 6 weeks? I didn't have a baby or a hysterectomy!

After the nova sure ablation, when can I have sex? My nurse said 2 weeks, my doctor said 3 then on my discharge papers it said 6 weeks? I didn't have a baby or a hysterectomy!

2 weeks is fine: Usually after an ablation I tell patients to wait until the discharge stops or 2 weeks & then only if they feel comfortable. You're right, it's 6 weeks after a vaginal hysterectomy. You are free to have intercourse much sooner, remember the ablation is not birth control so make sure you can't get pregnant! ...Read more

What are the pros and cons of medialstinal ablation?

What are the pros and cons of medialstinal ablation?

Need more info: The mediastinum is the area around your heart. Ablation means "destruction". The pros and cons depend on what is being destroyed (lymph nodes? Cancer?) and how (radiofrequency? Heat? Cold?) ask your doctor what the evidence is for the procedure, and what alternatives are possible. The mediastinum contains critical structures, so you don't want to risk any non-proven procedures. ...Read more

I've been told a vt ablation is very unusual. Under what criteria should it be performed?

I've been told a vt ablation is very unusual. Under what criteria should it be performed?

For refractory VT: Vt is a reentrant rhythm occurringusually in the region of previous scar tissue in the left ventricle (previous infarct). The primary therapy for patients with cardiomyopathy is implantation of an icd. Patients who have recurrent therapy from thier icd and unresponsive to antiarrhythmic drugs then ablation is considered. There are VT ablations performed in patients with normal hearts as well. ...Read more

I am currently experiencing ocassional AF with increasing frequency. This follows successful Ablation approx 3.8yrs ago. Is 2nd ablation warranted?

Most likely: You responded well to your first ablation during which they likely electrically isolated your pulmonary veins. One or more of your veins probably reconnected and the most effective approach based on your age is a repeat ablation. Your MD should know that your atrial fibrillation has recurred so anticoagulation and stroke prophylaxis can be addressed as well ...Read more

Before I qualify for a second ablation procedure to re-treat AF, do I need to be in a state of constant or persistant AF? How is persistant defined?

Before I qualify for a second ablation procedure to re-treat AF, do I need to be in a state of constant or persistant AF? How is persistant defined?

Depends: It depends in part on how far out from your first procedure you are, whether or not you are taking anti arrhythmic medications and whether or not you are symptomatic. Persistent AF is simply AF lasting more than 7 days. It is not uncommon to have recurrent AF in the first few months after ablation and still be arrhythmia free in the long term but you will need to be followed closely. ...Read more
