    Hello Tracey,

         You are following the correct route.  There is so much that can be done today for PSVT and ablation techniques are continually improving.  I recently had a successful ablation for the same condition, (touch wood), but it is largely dependent on an accurate diagnosis.  Put your trust in your cardiologist or physiologist  The condition is highly treatable, especially in the case of an otherwise healthy heart.
