Problems after ablation for SVT, response to Becky2830

"I have stabbing chest pains and a pretty much constant heavy pain and have had my svt 3 times since but I can't even walk into my kitchen without my heart rate increasing to about 150bpm and me being short of breath..."

This is definitely not the expected result.

Sometimes a partially successful ablation (which weakens but does not eliminate the extra pathway) can cause an almost incessant milder tachycardia. Alternatively there could be some bleeding into the space around your heart causing the pain and making the pumping less efficient - this is potentially serious.

I think you should get your family doctor to arrange an urgent visit to the hospital to have an echocardiogram and a 24 hour heart recording and review by your cardiologist.
