I'm a 50 year old woman who experienced on March 30th what I was told a SVT. My heart rate had reached 222 beats per minute by the time I got to the ER. I was admitted into ICU and over the course of a 9 day stay o had first an ablation Done to see if it would correct my issue. During the ablation they thought they saw a blockage so the next day I had a catheter done to check. Thank God no blockage and the heart muscles were strong but my rate now would not go past 50 beats per minute and normal is 60. My cardiologist suggested I get a pacemaker to fix the issue so I did. I haven't had it yet a week now. I feel a lot better but still quite nervous since this is all new to me. I was hoping I could get some advise from someone who has experienced this.
