In brief: Repeat the Monitor

For the first 3 months after an atrial fibrillation ablation, you get a free pass.
Don't worry about it until afterward. For other procedures, if it's still a problem a few weeks out from the procedure, i'd usually repeat an event or holter monitor to see what's going on. Sorry to hear it didn't get resolved on the first shot. Bear with them; it happens to the best.
