3rd ablation

Thank you all for your support

Not good news. Procedure abandoned after 2 hours. Heart was in aggressive af and didnt have the right tool. Lots of scar tissue present after last 2 procedures. Will need to come back and he will be working on me all day maybe in august. He deemed the op too dangerous to carry on. Pissed off does not cover how I feel at the moment. Wound at the top of my leg wont stop bleeding so have to stay in tonight again. Not happy. Xx

  • Oh Vissy, so sorry to hear that, what a crashing disappointment for you. I do hope you can get a good resolution over time. In the meantime I hope your leg issue is sorted quickly.

    I had an EP study earlier this year and did not get the outcome I was expecting and hoping for so I empathise with you. I hope you feel less upset in the coming days.

    Best wishes, thinking of you.


  • Thank you. Dr leong came and spoke to me a little while ago and I feel better now. As he said better to be safe than sorry.

  • I thought I recognised the name! I had my first ablation in February with Dr O Callaghans team at the Heath. I remembered that the other E.P. was Dr Leong. I also thought that the care I received from everyone was fantastic. Let us know when you know what the plan of action will be. Take care of yourself.x
