Yikes!  But everytime I feel better and better afterwards.
I no longer have any VT just trigeminy and bigeminy that sometimes get so out of control that I cant catch my breath.
My appointment is 6 weeks away.
Going in again for another ablation should be ok for me. I know what to expect.  I know all the staff now and what is happening in their lives. LOL! 
Anyone else had multiple ablations?
Any one else experience a lot of Trigeminy or Bigeminy and used cath ablation to fix it?

Hi jules, I'm sorry to hear that you have to have another cath done. I've had 7 myself and just had a balloon placed about a month ago. I've also had quadbypass surgery when I was 44, I am now 47. I don't know what those words mean that you asked about, but I will always have angina because of a blocked artery behind my heart that they cannot fix. Good Luck with your cath and you will also be in my prayers.

Hi Jules

I'm really sorry that you have to have another ablation. I've had three, unsuccessfully. I still get 130BPM every morning. Flecainide has stopped the really fast tachycardia that happened occaisionally and had to be stopped with Adenosine at the hospital. I've only ever had one bout of bigeminy, also stopped with Adenosine. I'm on a waiting list for a fourth ablation but I don't know if I'll have it, there doesn't seem to be much point. I'm very pleased to hear that your procedures have given you some relief and wish you all the best.

Hi Jules!  Ive had 2 ablations, i wish you the best of luck.  YAY, no more V tach!!  That's wonderful.  What's bigeminy??  Is it PVC's every 2nd beat?  Is that dangerous? 

Good luck!
