Dec 22, 2019 · Ablation do I need it? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Thank you so much for sharing your story!! I'm so sorry about your situation, hope you're doing well and healing. I don't smoke or drink but have diabetes. Still haven't gone for EP study, have to make an appointment. Did you have a defibrillator and pacemaker?
You said it shocked you back into rhythm which sounds like a defibrillator. Nowadays I think they're combined. I have been very very concerned (scared of death) about being on the Amiodarone, it frightens me and I have been on it for a year. I saw it has a black box warning and people warn against using it, that it is very toxic. I thought I would be taken off of it but then I was afraid to, that my heart would be out of rhythm and have vt or something.

Dec 17, 2019 · Ablation do I need it? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Hi I had an episode of VT after I fell, not sure if it was caused by the fall or not, never had one before. I was put on Amiodarone and they want to do EP study and ablation and put in a defibrillator. I had MRI of my heart recently and everything was perfect, second opinion doctor said. The first doctor in hospital said it will happen again, which I think is very unprofessional, he scared the heck out of me and I had anxiety and stress for over a year wondering if it might happen again, couldn't sleep at all. I wore an external defibrillator for three months with no problems. So I'm going to have to have the EP study with my new doctor to be on the safe side but he said everything looks pretty good.
Anyone have any input or information? Thank you so much.
