Q: Post SVT catheter ablation symptoms

Post SVT catheter ablation. I had my surgery 3 weeks ago and started feeling pain on my right thigh 3 to four days after my surgery. My doctor said that it might be my femoral nerve that got irritated from the surgery and it will go away in a month or two. I still feel the pain when I walk and sometimes sit down and also feel heaviness on my right leg, but I don't see no swelling or hematomas on my right leg. Can someone please tell me how long will it take for my leg to heal completely? Also, a week ago, I started getting rapid heart beats again. From 125, 115 to 107. Is this another issue that I have to be concern? Please help.

Hi Sherry,


I'm not able to address your question regarding the pain you continue to feel, but did want to provide a link to information on heart palpitations.  It is something to be concerned about and I recommend discussing with your physician.


All the best,
