Just wrote a long post thats disappearead to cyberspace so here is the abridged version:
Following disaterous second ablation I was resigned to living on flecanide for as long as it worked or it was medically feasable.
A recent exercise stress test showed no heart disease but lengthening on QT interval at higher heart rates. Flecanide is a known cause of this so E.P. wants to reduce flecanide and redo test in 3 months. I am concerned because:
1.i walk quite strenuously each day is this still ok?
2.Previously I needed th higher dose to keep heart in rhythm. If I cant take flec what next? HR and BP low so increased dose of bisoprolol no good without pacemaker
3. E.P. doesnt want to see me so will ring arrhythmia nurse but not sure if it should my G.P. that I express my concerns to.
My previous positive attitude has completely disappeared.
Any comments gratefully received.
