Hi all, just a quick update on my Cryoablation which was performed on September 7th 2018 at Liverpool heart and chest hospital. The first couple of months after were a bit of a rocky road but I noticed a significant step in the right direction on month 4. It taught me to be patient and not expect to much to soon with this procedure.
Now 6 months from the most scary day of my life (im a chicken!) I can honestly say my symptoms have virtually gone, I have a few palpatations some days but if that's as bad as it gets I am very pleased with the result.
I continue to avoid all of the usual triggers and my quality of life is now 99% better than before the ablation. The second good thing to come from this is I no longer fear having an ablation, so if the problem re-occurs going for number 2 would not be anywhere near as stressful as last September. Knowledge is power and ablation although a very technical procedure is not something that should cause too much worry once you have the experience.
Best wishes to all who continue to suffer with heart issues and if you have the opportunity to consider ablation please don't do what I did and delay having it done through fear rather than getting fixed and getting on with your life. 👍
