I'm New to the Site (Real Long)
Hi to all, Well I'm a 25 yr old who has SVT.It started out first with IST then after the 3rd ablation It was swicthed to SVT I am on my 4th Sinus Modification w/Ablations around the sinus node and the docs are still puzzled why my HR still hasn't budged. I am at the Max for Beta Blockers, and Calcuim Channel Blockers, and lets not forget they added some Xanax to see if that would work.. My HR was so bad cause me to deliver my daughter at 27weeks. So Now I have the 4th Ablation on the 18 th and the docs still feels that I'm too young to have a Pacemaker placed in. He says, he doesn't want me to have " the BURDEN" of having a pacemaker. I have no Sex drive what so ever from the high dose of atenolol(side effect), Was advised "never" to get pregnant again, due to my heart. Every Month I go to get blood drawn tocheck my CK Levels which indicates that there has been some damage to the heart muscles and can also indicate that your muscles have experienced heavy use. Well my Levels haven't droped below 200 and the normal for Females is 67. Doc states to me that he will be more aggresive this time (which he should've been the other time he did it) therefor I might end up with a pacemaker, but he really doesn't want too put me through this. So my question to all of you is should I put my foot down and let him know that I can't deal with this anymore to go ahead and place it in, or am I really to young and he is right that it would be a burden on me. I have had this problem for 7yrs now, with every test done to man on me...I do want more kids, I do want to be able to make love to my husband and be in the mood. Me and my husband have weighed the pros with the cons. What am I to do.. I explained this to him and he still isn't understanding me.He reads what the other Doc who was the Head EP stated that, he explained to me that I will end up with a pacemaker the 2nd time i had my ablation.I mean, My heart rate was the reason for my medical discharged from the AirForce.I feel like crap, mostly from the drugs.SO Any Advise or Wisdom about having SVT or a Pacemaker and life afterward with a pacemaker will be so Thankful.. Thx in Advance. Charly
You know you're wired when...
You can hear your heartbeat in your cell phone.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
