"Sometimes, the electrical flow gets blocked or travels the same pathways repeatedly creating something of a “short circuit” that disturbs normal heart rhythms. Medicine often helps. In some cases, however, the most effective treatment is to destroy the tissue housing the short circuit. This procedure is called cardiac ablation.
Cardiac ablation is just one of a number of terms used to describe the non-surgical procedure. Other common terms are: cardiac catheter ablation, radiofrequency ablation, cardiac ablation, or simply ablation."
One worried mommy,
I understand your fears and concerns and hopefully one of our members will be along to share their experience. Anytime we find out we have a heart problem it is bound to make us anxious but I suspect you will be OK and those littles ones will be raised by one awesome and healthy Mommy.
I have known of many young people that have had the ablation and done well so be your own best advocate, remember knowledge is power and don't hesitate to get a second opinion.
