I'm more writing this to just vent (sorry) but to see if any other women have experienced this.
I was diagnosed with SVT back when I was 22, and generally it has been managed by beta blockers (25 mg/day). My husband and I made the decision for me to have an ablation this February so that we could start trying to conceive this summer. I went through the ablation (was awake during it which was...interesting! But I got through it!) and stopped my meds one month post-op. Two months post-op I went back for my check up expecting and hoping to get the all-clear...and was told I still have arrhythmia and need another ablation.
I have FULL faith in my doctor - he is nothing but competent, compassionate, kind, and hard working. But I have to admit I am devastated. My husband and I were so looking forward to trying to start a family. And now I have to wait 2 months for another ablation, and then 2 months after that for the all-clear.
I'm so nervous that this one won't work, and then I'm either going to need another ablation or I'm going to have to try and just have a pregnancy on beta blockers.
I realize this is not the end of the world. It's not cancer. I'm 30 and still have time to start a family. But it was so defeating to know that I have to hope that another ablation will do the trick.
Thanks for listening
