I have been taken readings of my HR while relaxed. This is not my resting HR, which is lower, but a standard reading taken around the same time each evening while sat watching TV.
The slight rise in Oct 16 seems to correspond with my cardioversion. I am not sure why there is a blip in Feb 17 prior to my 1st ablation; I don’t recall anything unusual at the time. I also don’t understand why my HR rose steadily after the first ablation and then fell before rising again at the end of June; I expected it to rise immediately and slowly get back to normal. There does seem to be a similar response after the second ablation with a gentle rise over the first six weeks. The elimination of the beta blockers caused a significant sudden rise, but there seems to be the expected slight downwards trend since then.
