EP Study – Update.
Good evening all,
For those who are new please follow the link to get the background info.
Right had the dread the EP study carried out few days back and almost made full recovery. Yep it took over three months to make it happened, we love our NHS, lol.
The study was not dissimilar to described by Czechmate, yes my heart was tested to limits, it went off to the races while I was feeling sick and at times felt my chest was squeezed so much that I could not breath. The experience was quite painful and scary at times. At the start of the study I was warned by the EP consultant that Its likely that i would faint during the test and I successfully managed that too, lol.
The study concluded as negative, meaning the consultant couldn’t induce the VT arrythmia during the study and according to him, “did his best” but it was not meant to be hence I am no longer a candidate for a device implant.
Now the dilemma, would this outcome be classed as ‘good news’ or ‘bad news’, I am totally at loss to comprehend. I was convinced/prepared by my cardiologist and the EP consultant that due to my condition and the occurrences of sudden syncope; I would definitely need a device.
The study concluded otherwise and left me in the conundrum, I cant get my head around to ‘What If’, there are no assurances!
Feel free to chime with your thoughts.
