My heart has problems



Well we spent most of the day at the Doctors and he thinks my heart is really messed up, so I am scheduled for a number of tests this week and Will be scheduled for more we think in about two months. I have ventricular tachycardia which is bad. He thinks it may be coming from 5 or 6 different places in the heart, normally people who have ventricular tachycardia have it in only one or two places in the heart. the test I will have in about two months is a EP study. Based on the information collected during the study, the doctor may continue with an ablation procedure at that time. That what I know for now.

Sounds serious. It sounds like this is taking longer than I would have expected. I suppose that time is not of the essence in this situation???

Ablation i have heard of //// I know of one person that had great results from ablation Wm has atrial fib. but the doctor has not suggested anything like ablation. So far his meds take care of him.


Good luck.


I am so sorry that you are going through so much right now. Keep prodding the Docs along. they will soon get you well.

Rest, eat well and rest. Do not over do. I am so sorry, you did not need this stress added to your recovery. Find a good book and some movies and give yourself some off time until the docs get to the bottom of it. Good luck and let us know, Debbie

Ventricular Tachycardia (V-tac) is when the lower part of you heart beats irregular and can lead to V-Fib which worse and can stop your heart and kill you. They are not sure why I am having it that is part of the reason for all the Tests. I may need to get a defibrillator/pacemaker that can shock my heart to restart it if the V-tac gets worse or my heart strength gets weaker. The ablation can fix V-tac sometimes, but not always. There are no meds that can fix it that I can take. I am afraid it is Major, we will find out how bad in the next few months
