I just thought that some may be interested to know that at the patients day I talked to one of the E.P.s who given a talk.. It was the guy from Oxford.
I explained my situation ( unable to have another ablation due to complication during the last one--possible pierced aorta ). Without hesitation he said that he would do it again, under general anaesthetic with a probe down my throat for extra visibility and guidance.
I live in Wales and Wales wont pay for me to go anywhere else. If I did pay for myself I would also have to pay for follow up treatment and any further touch up jobs. I am almost sorry I asked! I only moved from England 4 years ago and in general my medical "care" has been better in Wales but this is a real stumbling block for us welsh patients.
