Good Luck! I also had the ablation five years ago...what a wonderful procedure. You'll be so glad you did..by the way, tell them you want to be completely out,there is no reason to be awake. don't be surprised if you have a few 'quivers' for a few days afterwards...the catheters irritate the inside of your heart...no big deal, they'll quit and you'll be on with your life!
: I've had two ablations. One in the early 80's when they did it during open heart. The last was in the cath lab. I assume that is how they will do yours. It's alittle uncomfortable when they put the cath in but otherwise it's not all that bad. they will give you plenty of "happy drugs" and that helps. You have to lie still for a few hours afterwards, but honestly its not that bad and you will feel so much better afterwards. I know the high heart rate can be a drag right now and you'll be glad to get rid of that. You'll do great. Let me know how you do.
