About Me: Female, 43, Bonney lake, WA, member since Dec 2008
Hi! My name is Joy and I am a proud Momma to a crazy little 4 year old ;) Im a nanny to 2 sweet little ones, a 4 year old boy and a 2 year girl. I was diagnosed with SVT in 2003 and was able to keep it on the down low up untill recently...when I started throwin runs of
[More] PVC's that in return, threw me on the floor. I had an angio on Nov 21 08 to rule out artery issues..all came back good. I recently finished up sporting the fashionable King of Hearts loop recorder to further investigate my sudden urges to take naps in odd places. It showed multiple runs of NSVT and 3 episodes of A-fib. After a trip to ER to ring in the New Year (Only the best!) and review of my event monitor recordings, I was referred to an electrophysiologist who diagnosed me with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome as well as AVRT-VT. Im scheduled for an EP study and Ablation for both arrythmias on Jan 20. Untill then..I'll be practicing what I preach to my kids...patience!
"Im curious to see what the success rate of this type of ablation has. I had one back in Jan of 09 for WPW and it worked beautifully! Im hoping for the same results on this one. The vt is coming from the pulmonary valve. Im sched to have ..."
"I take Metoprolol ER 100mgs and also Zoloft 50mgs...call me nuts but I look forward to going to bed at night to see what adventure I'll go on! ;) I have not been able to pinpoint what (if any) drug might be causing this. Im thinking per..."
Just a quick note to say hi!
Hi, I see that you are young also and you have heart issues..It is so scary! How do you deal day to day with it? I have incredible anxiety from these PVC's that started 3 months ago and lately I have been a reck trying to finish nursing school and to deal with going to the cardiologist on top of it and I am about 11 weeks prengant too. (High risk, lost a baby last year to a congenital heart defect..) Anyways, I will stop rambling..whenever u get around to it send me a line..:)
Weight loss...I have had the same thing happend, my weight was pretty consistant, then when my rhythms spiraled out of control, the lbs seemed to shed daily, too the point that my Dr told me to drink ensure to put it back on. He didn't think it was related. Strange, if you ask me! This drug can cause ventricular arrhythmias, prolong the QT interval among other uninvited problems. It is 2x a day(10am&10pm) everday..arghhhhh! I'm just trying to be hopeful with this:)
Hi Joy...It's common for Dr's to want to see what kind of activity is going on after an ablation. I can totally relate to the feelings your having about feeling "mechanical" I was going to start the meds today, but I've decided to wait until Weds. I have to go for Jury Duty and don't want to be sitting around a courthouse having just started a pretty potent drug. Keep me posted with your progress:) How are you doing with your emotions?
