Hello everyone, I I'm 26, had Svt since ai was a kid, my first episode was when I was at age of 11, then after every year I had an attack, but on last year I had attacks every month speeding my heart at 210 bpm, so I have to go to the hospital [sad] , then I went to see the cardiologist, and he discovered that supaventricular tachycardia, he referrd me to the electrophysiologist and he recommend me an ablation, after too much thinking and have to take 2 pills a day of propagenone 150 mg, I decided to do my ablation on may 3rd of 2016, My surgery was programmed at 8:00 am, I arrived at the hospital at 6:00 am very nervous, i change my clothes and the got in my room, getting ready with my intravenous for the drugs [smile] , then the doctor get i. The room, nurses, all kind of very good people, then they transfer me to the cold room!!
They shave me, they put me some cold patches around all my body, that room was very very cold, I saw like 10 monitors, and the good part its that they had music in the cath lab haha so I can relax, then after that they put some drugs and I was feeling like dizzy and then after that I sleep, and they wake me up when they induced my heart to go so fast and I felt those palpitations like 3 different times, then after that I rmeember that they wake me up and I saw the doctor and he told me, the surgery was a success you are good, they take me to the recovery room for an hour because of sedation, I remember that I got out around 12:30 almost 4 hoirs of surgery, then later at my room I discovered that they make me 2 ablations one on my left leg and the other on the right leg, i didnt feel pain just disomcort, and they told me you dont have to move until 8 pm, and I was like wow!!!
That was the most painful part the recovery and be on bed with no moving for more than 8 hours [sad] , but now its worth it!!
Do the ablation you will get your life back!
Maybe I will drink a coffe tomorrow, chocolate caffeine [smile]
I cried when rhe doctor told me do your normal life youre svt free, enjoy your family you are never going to see me again hehe, just one more follow up appointment and thats it svt free, free of frustations, free of pills, now I can enjoy life enjoy my family and live everyday like its going to be the last!! Do the ablation!! Do it!
Its such a blessing to be ok, thanks for reading this long history, if you have questions dont hesitate and make them!!
