I saw my consultant yesterday. I had a right side ablation under local, but I would need a left side ablation to maybe sort this out. Because of other medical conditions I am unable to have a left side ablation. He hopes to control the tachycardia with medication, but if not they would need to stop the atria communicating with the ventricles and I would need a pacermaker.
I'm lost, is this still the latest thread on tachycardia?
How's everyone doing? My sad tale is that I had an ablation in January which only made things worse, I went from having an episode every 6 weeks to having one every week. I spent Easter in hospital because they couldn't get my HR down, it was 150 for 75 hours (yes, 75 hours). I'm on a beta blocker now, but the dosage had to be halved this week because my pulse was going down to 39.
I'm seeing the consultant next week, hopefully he will suggest a way forward.
How did it go with the consultant highway_star? I'm fed up with it as well and I've only had it since March. Mine definitely seems to be exercise-induced, I was scrubbing a table from the garage on Friday which resulted in another episode.
