    Hello Rich
    Sorry to hear you’ve been having problems with SVT for all this time and I’m surprised they haven’t suggested a way forward for you.
    To put your mind at rest Catheter Ablation is funded on the NHS and you have a right to ask for it. It is approved by the regulatory body ” N.I.C.E. ” so, assuming? you are a suitable candidate you must PUSH for it.
    The NHS is trying to save money at every turn but health is health – go for it!!

    Inspiring story. So glad it all worked out for you.

    I’m a 20 year old male suffering from SVT. It’s been a horrible 18 months, as it took them a long time to diagnose. I have to really watch my day-to-day life. Can’t play sport/drink alcohol. Really gets me down.

    Looking into ablation to finally cure this curse. Did it cost anything or NHS funded? I’d sell everything I own just to be? healthy again.

    Best wishes,

    Rich

    Hi there
    I’m glad to say that my ablation worked back in 2010. My consultant told me I now have a “happy heart” and, as a medic myself I know that is just about the best news you can get.
    I sometimes get breathless but I cant kid myself? … it’s due to being overweight and I’m working on that, having now lost 21 lbs in 6 weeks.
    I wish you well, and, believe me there’s nothing to worry about – the operation is commonplace now.
    Good luck!!!

    Thank you for posting your video. I will have radiofrequency ablation for? my heart this April which is the same as catheter ablation I think. How do you feel now, does it completely cure your arrythmia?

    When you are called It’s more like a laboratory that O A fine catheter is introduced into your groin and finds it’s way around to your heart via a main vein (doesnt hurt). Then they find the tissue they want to dispose of and burn it (you can see on the monitor what they are doing if you are awake). If there’s any discomfort th The improvement will come believe me – good luck !!! ? (catch me on ghj@talktalk.net)

    Hi there – that’s brilliant news – glad you’re feeling so much better!! I found that exercise made things even better over a period of time so it’s onwards and upwards now!!

    Thanks for bringing me up to date – all the best. ? (Graham)

    Graham, reporting back as promised. Had an ablation for A-Fib five days ago and it seems to have been a complete success. I cannot describe how much better I feel.

    A-Fibbers, if your heart is essentially normal then find yourself an ‘aggressive’ cardioligest and have? an ablation done. As Graham points out, the procedure while being complex from a medical perspective, is nothing to worry about from a patients perspective.

    G’day yerself !!!

    Sorry to hear you’ve now got A/Fib …. however, I am told this is not unusual and, as you probably know the only real difference between flutter and fib is that the latter is persistent as opposed to regular.

    I suppose what I am trying to say (having been? discharged a week ago) is that another procedure is merely a step towards RECOVERY and not the disaster it may appear to be.

    Good luck and keep me posted!!! (Graham … UK)

    G’day Graham, thanks for the video. I’m 53 and had? flutter (AFL) for two years. I had an ablation two months ago and there was good and bad news. The good news is that the AFL was cured. The bad news is that I now have Atrial Fibrillation (AF). I’m scheduled for the AF ablation in two weeks. Because my heart is essentially normal physically, I’ve been given a better than 80% chance of success. I’ll let you know how it goes. I agree with your sentiments about the ablation itself, go for it guys!!
