I had my Watchman implant put in on April 27, 2023. After you have a Watchman implant put in, there are three TEE’s that have to be done over the course of a year. This is a detailed post about my first TEE experience.
My third a-fib ablation was just a light touch up but there is a 3-month blanking period for any kind of ablation no matter how minor it is. These are my weekly updates during my recovery.
I’ve been invited to do a live interview on YouTube on Monday, May 15th at 4:30 pm Central to discuss a-fib. This is an interactive interview so if you have questions you’ll be able to send in questions during the show so I can answer them.
Well, it is finally over. I am officially a Watchman implant recipient as of April 27, 2023, and I couldn’t be happier! Read all about my experience!
The three-month period following your ablation is called the “blanking period.” It is the time it takes for heart to fully recovery after the procedure. I update this post weekly with updates on my recovery.
