Hi, I'm 22 nearly 23 I was diagnoses with SVT 3 years ago and had an ablation quite swifty afterwards as my heart reached 234 beats a minute - when it was caught that is! And I was also collapsing with it - one day as many as 7 times in the space of a few hours! I had the ablation and I thought it was all ok. However I still kept collapsing and was put on fludrocortisone which raises my blood pressure as it would drop, yet I still kept collapsing.. Not as much but still. I then had a reveal device put in my chest a year and a half ago to monitor my heart rate and it will record anything over 170 bpm.. A year ago it started to pick up my heart rate going to 190 bpm and about six months or so ago I was told my svt was back. I have been put on bisoprolol but it makes me so tired all the time and restricts what I can and cannot do. I don't know whether to come off my beta blockers or not and I don't really know how to suggest it and justify it to my cardiologist seeing as now I'm on beta blockers I'm not having any episodes. I personally would like another ablation so I don't have to be on meds for life and I don't want all the restrictions on my life. Any suggestions would be great as I really don't know what to do.
