Hello, my 13 year-old was recently diagnosed with SVT after trying for about 4 years to get an episode on EKG. She went as long as 8 months without one but within the last year they occur every 2-3 months. She is an athlete and it seems exercise and stress are triggers with the episodes increasing in frequency and duration. The last episode lasted 1.5 hours with a HR of 222. Her cardiophysicist is recommending ablation but we are very frightened to do this. She has not taken any medication yet. If we do the ablation, it would be good to do so over the summer; however we do not want to rush into anything either. In them meantime, no sports. I am researching and trying to network in the DFW area. Any feedback would be wonderful, thank you!
