About Me: Female, 49, Huntington Station , NY, member since Nov 2009
43 y/o female. Four children ages 13, 10, 6, and 4. Signed on to med help for some info and hearing other people's experiences with heart flutters, PVC's. etc. Great help so far knowing other people are dealing with this.
Just a quick note to say hi! Hey, as long as it works for him. I don't understand the external radiation bit. My doctors as well as my brothers believe in radiation only as a last resort. Time well tell and we can only hope for the best. Give him my regrads and best wishes for a speedy recovery. Mangee
Patty, I had an ablation 3 1/2 mths ago. Before then I had so many pvc's per min it caused my heart to develop damage.
Nothing I tried helped and process of elimination did nothing to alleviate them, possibly due to ARVD, which is genetic.
I do notice that adrenaline plays a major factor with me now after surgery - especially if I get irritated at something.
I've tried 4 meds/dosages now and nothing worked to help my HR/pvc's after surgery; so I may have to have another ablation.
Hope you feel better soon.
Just a quick note to say hi! I know exactly how you feel,I went to the ER a year ago with this they gave me metoprolol and it helps a little, I cant function when these are going on ugggg, It's so scary! sometimes they go away for a while and then bam there goes the thumping again, Right now im having them they started a couple days before Thanksgiving and are still here, I hope they stop by christmas! Anyway goodluck to you and i hope you have many many pvc free days, just come here when they are bad, It helps me. Shawndrea
