I have been diagnosed with inappropriate sinus tachycardia. I have tried several beta blockers and now a combination of Inderal and Digoxin. My doctor is planing on repeating the Holter and echo and reccommending that I see an EP doctor in Bethesda (military). I have been told that if I have an ablation, I will most likley need a pacemaker. I have been dealing with this condition for 1 and a half years and I've come to terms with the idea of a pacemaker because my quality of life right now is poor due to the dyspnea, SOB, activity intolerance etc. My question is ... if I due need a pacemaker 1) Will it be placed during the ablation? 2) Will it be done by the same doctor? 3) Will it require an inpatient stay... and how long? I would also appreciate any other information you might think useful on the subjects of undergoing an ablstion and pacemaker insertion. Thank You
