sympathectomy side effects
I have been throught the progression of medications to control my ventricular tachycardia. Sotolol lasted 2 1/2 years without an episode until a month ago. Had 9 icd shocks in 45 minutes. Doctor took me off sotalol and put me on amiodarone. Nothing since then. He has suggested doing a sympathectomy to control the VT and thus the shocks. Does anyone know the downside to a sympathectomy? Reserch on the internet suggest that most are happy with the procedure. Are there any adverse side effects? At this point I am up for anything that controls the VT and the shocks. Thanks in advance.
