| | Pacemaker after Ablation - How does it feel?
I am having an ablation next week for SVT and the electrophysiologist has told me that there is a possibility of having a pacemaker after they are through as he suspects one of my extra pathways is too close to the heart's natural pacemaker.
Here's my question: for those of you with pacemakers, what has been your experience? What does it feel like? How long did it take for you to get used to it? If anyone knows any of these answers and doesn't have a pacemaker, I'd be happy to hear your take too!
I am very happy to get this ablation, as I've been on many diff't meds for a few yrs now and the SVT is now breaking through plus I would like to be off them for good. I forgot how bad the episodes could get without drugs until this past wk as he has me off them for 2 wks prior to the ablation. Yesterday my h/r shot up to 186 then I lost track & nearly passed out. This morning it happened again but it was too fast to count, I kept getting mixed up! Anyway, these episodes are purely exhausting so I cannot wait!
Thanks for any answers/experiences you can give me!
