My journal entries will give a better accounting of my experience. Like you I was anxious over the procedure, so my EP gave me general anesthesia. With that and a hypo of Vallium, I remember nothing except sliding onto the table.
I asked about cryoablation, but my EP prefers RF ablation in most cases because it burns deeper and results in fewer repeats. I'm 2 months out and so far, no SVT. Use to get 4 or 5 per month. Still getting clusters of PVCs though and that concerns me.
.....forgot to mention, mine was AVRT aka Circus Motion Tachycardia.
I had all of 24 hours to contemplate my RF ablation. It was the most quick and painless procedure I believe I have ever experienced, a walk in the park really. Despite some complications, i.e. an unmaksing of an existing tachycardia, my AVRT was pretty much terminated. Hope it goes well for you.
I had an RF ablation done almost 4 months ago for SVT AVNRT. It was a 50/50 as the re-entry pathway was deep in the heart muscle and he couldn't burn too deep. So far it is holding (kop, kop)
The first month was the worse with frequent PVC's and PAC's and I thought that it had been a waste of time, but as the weeks have gone on the Paps have gone. I have had some issues with my Bp since the procedure and residual leg pain, mostly at the entry site but other than that it seems to have somewhat worked. (fingers crossed) My cardio did say he might have to repeat the procedure at somepoint in the future if the pathway grows back.
Thanks very much for your comments. If theres any more it would be much appreciated.
