4 years ago my EP told me my ablation had been a combination of what he usually did in 2 stages. I guess he meant if the first procedure did not work, so he presumably thought I would need a redo anyway.
The signs are that I will need a second ablation. Only now we have moved 200 miles away. I have confidence in him but it will be quite a performance and possibly expensive to decamp to London for several appointments.
So two questions.
1. Has anyone had a redo with a different EP? Were they reluctant to ablate where another EP had been before?
2. Would I rapidly become persona non grata if I asked the local EP whom I hear is very good, to do my assessment and the relevant investigations, and then if I needed a redo, ask him to refer me back to my original EP.
