I had an echo 2008 which showed vavles leaking, PFO abnormal issues. Since I have had 2 Heart ablations 4/30/2010 & 6/7/2010(3d mapping) and neither one took. I want to ask for another Echo to see if anymore damages are present or if some went away. My question is do Echos change especially if you have had any proceedure to your heart? Thank you againView Thread
Thank you so much! Webmd is a wonderful site for people like me who can not get straight and forward answers from our own PCP. Someday I will get to understand why my heart disease is such a mystery to my doctors. God Bless all of YouView Thread
thank you for your reply. But I need more information on taking the drug tambocor after having two heart ablations that did not work. as well as the side effects of the drug, but these side effects are ways of my life .... will the drug increase the side effects? how many people with 2 side by side heart ablations that did not take, are now on tambocor???View Thread
You would think after having a 9hr open heart surgery removing 2 aortic aneurysms and meshing one more. Replacing the aorta arch and reconstructing the esophagus. Then they find a PFO with ASA. Ok nothing to be done. So I decided to try Heart Ablation not was but twice within 5 weeks. The most recent lasted 5 hours and my heart again started to handle the proceedure but then my heart rejected by swelling up. So after having my 12th 24 hour heart monitor it indicated that I had 5 svt and one that last 200 beats. My question(s) Why would a heart reject having this procedure; by having the heart swell? So now they have decided for me to try tambocor 50mg. As the side effect list vision changes, nausea, sweats etc. I have these all the time. What will happen when I take this medication. Actually I am afraid of having more damage done to my heart. I am active and I cant quit on myself. please help me outView Thread
I recently had a heart ablation both sides of my groin. Within days my heart rate went back to its normal speed from 98-162. This is why I decided to have the Heart Ablation. My question is why did it not take? Is it normal that the first time did not take? Also I believe the mystery of having PFO(large bubble testing) Atrial Septal Aneurysm may be adding to the heart rate being so high. I if there were medical information on women with PFO, ASA & SVT. Has anyone heard if having a PFO closed and removal of the ASA help the heart rate to be close to a normal rate? thank youView Thread
Since my doctor has tried all of the beta blockers, ace inhibitors to control my heart rate at resting or relaxing from 89-140,my blood pressure 148/88 - 176/100; both drop lower than first stated. With having the PFO, change in eye sight(blurred-double vision) my doctors want to attempt a procedure called "Ablation". I have no idea what the percentage is, risks are etc. I would think having 'large PFO & Atrial Septal Aneurysm closing the PFO and removing or meshing the aneurysm. My questions have been asked to my doctors and they say "I'm not sure what is the best for you". Well at least they are honest.View Thread
