Just got back from the doctors...

So i went to the cardio doctor today and i got some really good news.

Bases on my symptoms, ecg tests the Electrophysiologist said that my pvc's were NOT life threatining! He also recommended a Cather Alb, but he said that he does not see a reason to do it right away, so he told me to start taking Varapamil once a day and stop taking toprol xl 25mg. He also said that his office has a 90% success rate with curing or reducing majorly PVC's, even with my frequncy

So after the good news i have a couple questions.

A) I'v been on toprol for nearly a year and a half now, he told me to just STOP the meds and take this one. Is it safe to do so?

B) For the people who have had a Alb, i know you are sedated, but how does it feel? I mean i know theres a "pressure" feeling at the site they put it in, but do you feel it going up to the heart? how long did it take for your alb?
