Hello, I am a 23 year old female. I have had issues with a fast heart rate at times in my life where my heart rate can get all the way to about 198 beats a minute at a time. This started when I was about 14 or 15 and would occur once or twice a month. When I became pregnant with my daughter, I would have about 4 or 5 episodes a day. At this point it still was not clear what was going on. After giving birth to my daughter, I went to see a Cardiologist and was diagnosed with SVT. They had me try motoporol (sp) and after about a month or so I stopped that as I was still having episodes once or twice a month. For a while I have just dealt with it but lately it's been effecting my life, and I am having some I feel and others I do not, long story short about 3 or so a week maybe 2 or 3 a month average. I at one point was completely opposed to an Ablation but after having dealt with suffer if you will I would like to have it gone forever. I am going to have the ablation done and I am wonder what to expect. Will I have to stay over night? Will I be put to sleep? Will I be in alot of pain after? What will they do as far as the procedure? And can I resume my work the next day as I am a day care staff member in the infant room? Thank you for your advice in advance!
