Has anyone had ablasion to deal with upper valve skipped beats? My doctor is recommending that for me to deal with these which they say are harmless but a nuisance.



Nuisance? To Whom?

If it were me, I'd want to know exactly what benefit was expected before I had someone burning out the circuits in my heart.

Ablation is not reversible....

Ablation is not reversible, once they burn away the tissue it's gone.  Make sure the benefits are worth it.

The reason I am considering this is because of the skipped heartbeat that are a total nuisance. If there were other option, I would definitely look into them but the medication Metropol doesn’t help and I’m not sure of any other options. Suggestions?

Curious...................I'm a (was) 100mg 1X daily metoprolol user.  Ever since stopping cardvedilol use and beginning metoprolol use, I've had scattered periods of bigeminy PVC's. The "period" yesterday lasted 18+ hours, made me kinda SOB, and I almost called EMS. Today, on my own, I reinitiated carvedilol use.  I suspect the metoprolol caused my issue. You might think of trying carvedilol.

Thanks Dave,


 Thanks Dave,


Any side effects to that medication? When I exercise doing cycling getting my heart rate up never any problems. Just periodic and certain physical activity such as bending over or squatting.


Let me know and I’ll mention this to my doctor.
