Hi, I am a 32 year old female. I am a mother of 2 and have been having SVT's for years. I lose my breath when I have them and get dizzy. I get tired just getting up and doing simple things. My cardiologist went in and did a catheter ablation a week and 2 days ago. I am still having the same problems with my heart as far as the rapid, skipping beats and making it difficult to breathe at times. I called my Dr. and they said to come back in two weeks if it is still messing up and they will have me wear another heart monitor.. Should I be concerned with it still messing up? It feels as bad as it did before I had the procedure at times. Thanks!

It is always frightening when you have a procedure and your sx seem to continue.  I do not have a good answer for you but I would encourage you to stay in contact with your cardiologist and if you feel you need to see him sooner then two weeks - do call and ask to be seen.
I am here to support you and please know I do care.  Let us know how you are doing.
