42 year old women with SVT awaiting ablation,
Please can anyone help me decide whether to go ahead with this op. I have had this condition for 30 years (diagnosed for 2). I have been taking beta-blockers which were of no help and just been switched to Flecanide - hope that works.
I have managed to cope with this over the years but am really frightened now as I dread having to end up with a pace maker or worse.
This condition has molded who I am and how I behave and although I enjoy life, work and my children I know that I live every day with this heavy cloud over me that claws at every thought and decision I make about simple everyday things - like not wanting to bend down and pick up my childrens clothes - I could go on but you all know the rest!
I want to be a normal Mum doing all the active things with my kids and not be rushing off to A&E anymore. Please can anyone share their experience of how the ablation was for them and how scarey it was? Has anyone had the op at Papworth?
I hope all of you out there are making progress in dealing with your condition and PLEASE - if you are young do all you can to be free of it otherwise it WILL dominate your life even if like me you don't want to admit it.
Thanks to you all for sharing your thoughts as I can now see that I am not alone.
