In 2003, my ejection fraction was 40%, and I was diagnosed with a cardiomyopathy. Tests revealed that I had PVC-induced cardiomyopathy. In 2003, I had two ablations (RVOT and LVOT) and after about 1 year, my EF normalized. I am so grateful to my doctor for going the
[More] extra mile to diagnose and treat my condition. The ablations were successful and I no longer need to take medication to manage the PVCs.
Thanks Medhelp for a great resource! Thanks to my friends for always being there to offer support and thoughtful help!
Just a quick note to say hi! Sorry I haven't been on here for a long time; I just got a Happy Easter note from one of the girls on here who also hadn't been on for awhile, and saw all the notes that had been posted in the last few years. I've been well and I am thankful to you for thinking of me. Have a blessed day! :)
hi mom to 3,
Well it was been another year and I see that you are still doing wonderful things on this site. Year 4 and no SVT. I'm doing great and I hope that you are as well. I hope you have a great holiday season.
Take care, Rose (rosetoes)
Thank you for asking. Life is the usual with good and bad. My Mom is more confused, more stubborn, more difficult to help and stay positive. My daughter's marriage isn't any better but she's handling it better. My husband's hospice patient passed away last week and we went to the funeral yesterday. My heart has been very unkind to me with chest pain and salvos (of PSVT or NSVT?) over 200 bpm. I don't like that. And the ultimate insult - we aren't getting any summer weather here in the NW. LOL We may get some blue patches and temps up to 75 today. What a relief. :-) And I have a baby chipmunk and a teeny baby wood rat I'm raising at home. Isn't life interesting? I'm ready for a bit of boring. :-)
