Hello -
 
I have had two ablations for AVNRT tachycardia...it has been about 2 months since my last attempt.  So far (knock on wood) I have had no SVT.  However, I have had a much higher amount of PVCs and lately when I get anxious I start having bigeminy.  Please answer any or all of my questions if you can folks...I really appreciate any insight I can get.
 
Questions
 
1) Is is possible that the scars from the ablation procedure are exacerbating this PVC/bigeminy activity?
 
2) I have had plenty of tests (echo, multiple EKGs, stress test, MRI) and have been told that my heart is pretty much normal (close to but within normal limits).  With that said is is safe to exercise and would regular exercise help to lessen the pvcs/bigeminy?
 
3) Since it seems that my bigeminy only happens when I am really anxious about something (during exertion or not) will the bigeminy stop happening if I get the anxiety under control, or now because it has happened will it keep happening easier and easier?
 
Thanks again for your help an answers.
 
God Bless

Hi ya Bill, I too am sorry you havent had any replies...the forum has been a bit slow lately.  I dont know much about PVC's but I would imagine that if your doc said that it was okay for you to go ahead and do some exercise then you should at least give it a try.  Just see how much you can tolerate without it becoming uncomfortable. 

I have a septial defect, pacemaker, and have been having arrithrimias the last few months...but that hasnt stopped me from walking my 5 miles a day in mornings and doing yoga.  Sometimes I go slower then normal and sometimes I dont make it the full 5 but I feel better when I am physically doing something.

I hope you do get some replies that pertain to your post...take care
