Well after waiting for what seems like forever (actually a month) I am finally getting my cardiac MRI.
I have SVT or AV nodal re-entrant tachycardia. I have seen it listed as both but the later ( AV nodal....) was what was listed on the findings after my EP study and failed ablation. During the EP study it was found that I have abnormal heart anatomy. MY two main arteries from the groin do not come together as one in the mid section, and enter the heart. The stay separate and enter in two very different spots. I was also told my Kochs triangle is highly abnormal and enlarged as well as my SA node or AV node I forget all this medical crap after I think about it too much. Also told I have persistent left sided inferior vena cava. Left atrial enlargement and possible right ventricular conduction delay. I do suffer from daily spells of very ow blood pressure and bradycardia as well, much of that medicine related I am guessing though.
I know that was a lot to swallow sorry for all that info at once. Medicine is nto working for me I am on short term disability due to synoscope if I do much more than lay around all day. I need to work we are broke. My short term disability is only 25% of my pay YIKES!!! And thats before taxes. After my Cardiac MRI we will discuss the possibility of a further ablation or what else? Who know. I sleep at least 3/4 of the day away and cant help it. I pass out from low pulse and blood pressure at least once a week. What can I do?
Has anyone been through a cardiac MRI? What exactly will they be able to tell me? Can they rule out heart failure? If they get a clear map can I feel safe with another ablation? The reason the first failed was the abnormal anatomy and they couldn't guide the catheters the proper way for fear of damage to SA node and possible heart block so ablation was nto fully performed and EP study was not fully performed either.
OK long enough LOL. Can you tell Im worried ? I have the MRI on Wednesday I hope to get a few responses by then to at least calm my fear. Im scared.
