Post Ablation Marathon Racing
Not a question - just an announcement.
    Ablated on July 30.
    Training resumed on Aug 13.
    Marathon completed on Dec 4. (just a touch over 4 hours)

I'm not posting to boast. Nobody here knows me, so what does it matter?

The reason I post it is: many people read this forum to learn about ablation.  They see plenty of people posting, "I had two ablations they worked, didn't work, sort of worked... now I PVC, ABC, minor SVT, slight AFIB, panic attacks and a small case of LMNOP."

These unsuccessful cases are unfortunate, frustrating and true.  However, I think it's important for people to know: a vast majority of people who are ablated (for SVT) are FIXED, that day. I was. You can be too.

Just sayin', "Look on the bright side."

Very good! I was ablated 11/16.  Since then I resumed light skating, yard work, walked several miles this past weekend...oh yeh..was up on my kid's roof, 2 stories up blowing leaves out of the rain gutters.  It works!
