Convergent ablation

Posted , 4 users are following.

i am waiting to be scheduled for a convergent ablation (my first one in March failed), which consists of two surgical procedures one right after the other-- the first being thorasic where they make an incision in my chest from the outside and work on the heart and immediately after, I have the ablation surgery thru the groin. 

If any of you on this fantastic formum are familiar with this convergent ablation, I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

    Hi Suzane,

    I am sorry to hear your previous ablation failed I rember you having it done,I can't help you with convergent ablation as I have never heard of it.

    I hope when you get it done it is all succesful this time.

    Like the others always here if you just want to get it off your chest.

    Hi Suzanne, I researched this procedure and it sounds quite exciting an appears to have a more successful outcome than a usual ablation.

    Don't be worried and please let us know how you get on. This will be my third attempt of answering your question!

    Hi Suzanne, I hope you had a happy Christmas without too many nerves!

    If I remember correctly, your convergent ablation is scheduled for tomorrow.

    I will be thinking of you and wish you every success.

    Good luck xx
