I saw my EP yesterday for my follow up after wearing the monitor for 24 hours. He could see a few short runs of ectopics which I have been feeling, and the heart speeding up and then slowing down again, and said as they were very short they were nothing to worry about. He suggested I stay on bisoprolol which I was taking a tiny dose of and use flecananide as a PIP if episodes last longer than 10 minutes. I had an episode last night, while waiting for my 20 year old daughter to come home after a night out and managed to control it by deep and slow breathing. Goes to prove anxiety is the cause for me.
I also mentioned that my fitness had deteriorated and that I was getting breathless quicker. He is sending me for an MRI scan of my heart to make sure the veins aren't narrowing due to the ablation as this is a 1% risk of the procedure. Has anyone had an MRI scan of the heart? I am happy with this as it will give me a detailed picture of my heart and how it is coping. Enjoy your weekend
