I'm new here!
I have had 3 ablations over the last 4 years; 1st for AF in my left atrial and 2nd/3rd for atrial tachycardia in my right atrial. I am now left with extensive scarring in my right atrial. Recently I've been having weekly tachycardia episodes along with bradycardia sometimes due to the meds.
I was due to have a further ablation last week which would have likely meant the need to implant a pacemaker but it was cancelled at the last minute as another cardiologist felt that there was no point in performing a further ablation as it was unlikely to work.
I'm now due to have an ICD implanted next week as they think that I'm at risk of having ventricular arrhythmias in the future. They want to manage the tachycardia with meds and the bradycardia with the pacemaker in the ICD.
I'm really worried about having an ICD implanted and all that it entails. If anyone else has had an ICD fitted with atrial tachycardia please can you let me know if it kicks in with atrial tachycardia?
Any feedback/experience would be gratefully received.
