: I am 40 and was recently diagnosed. Does anyone have this, and what are you doing to deter the palpitations?
: I have gone off all caffeine, but don't know what else to do. I am told I should get ablation radiotherapy, yet I only had one episode and this seems so hasty.
: Has anyone had ablation? I am interested to hear about it from the patient's perspective.
: thank you.


I have had this procedure done twice, unfortunately, I am not done yet...had another episode 2 days ago..procedures were done 3 years ago and this is the second recurrence since then. I now have to consider having it again or going for a pacemaker. Please feel free to email me if you want details about the ablation.
