9 years after first going to my GPS i finally had Ablation yesterday.
I just wanted to say that it's nothing to worry about. I don't like hospitals and I'm extremely squeamish (for instance I feinted when the procedure was being explained at the pre admission appointment!). I arrived at the hospital at 8.30am and was first on the list prep didn't take long and the Dr and nurses were sensitive to my squeamishness. The cryo ablation took 2 hours, them putting the wire into the groin was a mild dull pain and pressure. The ablation caused was strong pulses in my chest which were uncomfortable but not particularly painful. The doctor and nurses in the theatre were all great and before I knew it I was back on the ward.
A few hours later my parents collected me and took me home to my wife and 2 year old daughter for some big hugs. This morning I feel great, no pain in chest or even my groin. I'm taking it easy for a week so the groin wound can heal but after that I was surprised that the doctor said I could go straight in to cycling again without any danger to my heart.
