Its now been 2 months since my ablation procedure. I am not taking any beta blockers or heart rhymn drugs. My energy level is much higher.
As for the SVTs and or PVCs they are almost gone. I only have them when something triggers them. It seems like when I eat a meal that has alot of sodium or potasium. I will get some PVCs, 1 to 3 in a minute. Stress and other things will also trigger them. For example I was stung by a wasp and that trigger about 2 hours of PVCs.
Before my ablation i was having 40000 to 50000 PVCs while on Flecanide per day for days at a time. Before the Flecanide I was on Beta Blocker so much my heart rate was to low but this didnt stop the PVCs.
I would suggess that ablation is treatment that can reduce the SVT,PVC load on your heart. My EP told me if untreated a PVC,SVT over 15%-20% could lead to heart failure.
Ablation like mine is verg complex it took 6 hours in the cath-lab most of it mapping. The big thing is for them be able the make the PVC-SVTs happen so the can map them. At under 20% they may not be able to map them.
Find a good EP doctor mine had two fellowships in cardio and rythmn. Ablation and pacemakers is all he does. A good EP should tell you why you are a good canidate for Ablation because of high sucess rates.
As for me I feel better my heart rate runs about 60 at rest. First thing in morning it is in lower 50s. But over all I can do anything, my general health I feel better than I have in 20 years. The brain fog from the beta blockers and the general anestia is gone. I try to manage the litte things that trigger my PVC-SVCs.
I have lost 10 lbs and walk and even run a little.
Ablation can be good but it takes a good team to make it work.
