Here is my story. I have had severe RVOT PVC's. So bad I get dizzy, lightheaded, palpations etc. The Beta blockers did not work for me. I tried those before the ablation.
I had a normal ablation Nov 8th (through my groin area). The docotor found the spot and treated it several times. However my PVC's were not fixed. I was told the problem could be on the outside of my heart and refered to a Univ Hospital nearby for Epicardial Ablation which means on the outside of the heart. (through my chest)
I have decided to schedule this this year for insurance reasons. I will be going soon and wondered if people know about the Epicardial Ablation.
I still have the PVC's and I want this fixed and beta blockers make me feel sick, miserable, gain weight and they do not get rid of my PVC's so I am not on them.
Any info on Epicardial Ablation would be so very helpful!!
