Hi, I'm having an ablation done as I was diagnosed with wolff-parkinson-white syndrome. The Electrophysiologist said he thinks the area is towards the centre on the upper left hand side.
I'm nervous for the procedure. I've read the clinical side of what happens, but from a patients side what actually happens, is it sore, what is the sensation, how long do you have to lay there, do they strap you down so you don't move. How was the recovery in hospital after the procedure and how long before you could drive etc.
I don't do well in small spaces, locked rooms and the thought of being strapped down so you don't move is making me quite anxious. Please truthfully do they do that? Why can't they put you under general anethetist for the procedure if it takes so long. Sorry for the paranoid questions, as you can see I'm quite anxious, I would appreciate the answers please so I can try prepare my mind for the whole thing which is just over a months time.
Also lastly were you happy that you had it done.
Thanks take care.
