Thank you for your reply, I wouldn't just refuse without knowing why I had been put forward for this, as it may be necessary. I don't mean to be rude, and I do appreciate your input, but there's no way you can know that there is obviously no need for an ablation. Also just in a week of looking up about
this, I know that there are different types of SVT and that although rare, there is a form that can actually be life threatening. My waiting time is up and I see the consultant tomorrow, so I will see what he has to say. They did say my heart rate was irregular as well as fast by the way. My heart rate was around 230 for around 3 hours, but kept dropping right down to about
170ish before flying back up to 230ish again much of that time.
I will of course be asking why he wants me to have this procedure, and I think you are right; if it appears there is no good reason I will refuse it, but my doctor and I both think that he must have seen something on my last scan and that he wouldn't be offering this if it wasn't necessary. I will post what he says tomorrow. I'm also thinking there's a possibility he could be mixing me up with another patient, as in the letter to my doctor he said he had discussed this with me and I had agreed to it. I haven't even seen him yet apart from that first time I was brought in by ambulance.
