My son has svt and asthma,,he has had it for 6 years, he is 8 now, because of his asthma he cannot have any beta blocking medicine.  He has had many more episodes as he grows and the doctor mentioned an ablasion procedure, I am worried that the anethesia will cause his blood to thin, since he has asthma, this is a concern. He is almost at the thresold of his medication and has tried a few others.  Has anyone else experienced this and is the procedure safe for an 8 year old.  Please let me know,,I am worried sad

Hi wippee, welcome to healing well forum.  I am so very sorry that your son is going through this and at such a young age.  I dont have much knowledge regarding these things in children.  I am a firm believer that it is best to defer to the physicians for these things and get second and third opinions if necessary.  Hopefully, we will have a member who does have some knowledge or insight regarding this and will be able to post to you regarding it.  My thoughts are with you and your son...take care
