I had and ablation a year ago for tachycardia and arrithmia that wasn't controlled with medication (metropolol and flecainaide ) at worst my heart fluctuated between 40-220 for hours on end despite being hospitalized for several days and given IV with different cocktails of drugs... I was also cardio-verted in emergency but didn't work at all. I was fast tracked to have my ablation procedure with great success. It took more than 8 hours and a transeptual puncture to bring me back to a semi normal rhythm. I am so thankful to the doctors at Stanford hospital and my EP , they truly helped me out. For all of you fearful of the procedure, I must say that the way I felt previous to it made it a no brainier ... It might just give you back your life !!! Despite the blips and fear I'm so happy I live in an age while this option is available
Now, for my question. Despite feeling so much better, I still get quite breathless and every now and then I feel like I'm about to faint.. I have checked hr and BP and while my vitals get a little off its not remarkable. I was told I have left branch block and while the doctors weren't alarmed at the time I wonder if this can be the cause? Anyone out there has experiences with branch block? I will see my EP again in a month for a checkup and I just had a echocardiogram done I will also be using the ZIO patch for 2 weeks to monitor cardiac activity ( all part of routine follow-up) but I have learned so much from all of you that I thought I would ask about breathlessness and relation to block ...
Thank you so much for your time and input !
Wishing everybody continuous health
