HI JENNIFER; 4 WEEKS AGO I HAD CATHADER ABLATION PERFORMED ON ME IN LA. I HAVE HAD SVT FOR 23 YEARS. I THOUGHT HAVING THIS PROCEDURE WOULD GET RID OF MY PALPATIONS. IT TURNS OUT IT DID NOT AND NOW THE CARDIOLOGIST WHO PREFORMED THE ABLATION TELLS ME THAT THEY MAY NEVER GO AWAY BUT THE PART OF THE SVT THAT CAUSES MY HEART TO RACE TO OVER 200 BEATS PER MINUTE IS GONE. I WAS ONLY ABLE TO DISCONTINUE TAKING MY ATENOLOL FOR 4 DAYS BEFORE I HAD TO RESUME TAKING IT BECAUSE MY HEARTBEAT TO TOO FAST. IM NOT SURE MY ABLATION WORKED AT ALL. I WANT TO THINK IT DID BUT I STILL FEEL AS BAD AS BEFORE. : Hi, My name is Jennifer I am A 27 year old female just told I have supraventical tachycardia. I have been suffering from palpatations for years only being told it was anxiety. I was finally told it was SVT.My doctor wants to do a catheter ablation, It will be performed at the University of Chicago. And as well as some other posts I read I got worse after my second child, If any one has any information on this please contact me, I was very excited about having this done. now after reading some peoples experiances I am very scared.Thank you
: Jen
