Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT) and Running
I just asked my doctor if I could take the next step for me, that being ablation. I had read somewhere it was 80-90% successful. But based on your experience and that of a friend of mine (he had 3) I'm not so sure.

I was told after my first ablation, that the heart swells a little while it’s being worked on and tiny pinhead-size areas could be missed. That could bring back the arrhythmia at a later time. I was playing town ball (1860’s baseball), hit a double, and the SVT’s came back. The second ablation was done a few weeks later.
