I'm a 23 year old male and I have been diagnosed of PVCs (Monomorphic Right Ventricular Outflow Tract). I wore a Holter monitor last October and had about 10k PVCs with one pair. Also did MRI with an left EF of 53% with a very slight increase in left mass, but a structurally fine heart. Stress test with no PVCs while running. BP, 120/80.
After, in Febraury, I wore a Holter again and was found with 7k PVCs with 40 pairs. Also did a echocardiogram again with an EF of 55%. I have been told that my PVCs mostly occur while sleeping or resting.
I had no symptoms before all these started, after I was found with this I feel very anxious. I have read a lot and I have found that my type of PVC can be easily removed with ablation. I really just want to do it and forget about it, but meanwhile my cardiologist has started me with 2.5mg of bisoprolol for 6 months, and I'm not a fan of medication and I fear for possible side effects. I have read the bisoprolol slows down the heart, but my rate is already quite low while resting, 40s-50s, I fear that it can stop if I take that. That's whi I have done research and read a lot about magnesium helping with PVCs, there is even a clinical study done in Brazil where it showed a significant reduction of PVCs of all patients (http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S0066-782X2012000600002&script=sci_arttext&tlng=en).
That's why in the last 3 weeks I have started taking Magnesium malate about 260mg a day. I have seen a improvement of PVCs in the first 3 weeks but this last week I felt them comming back again with great frequency. I must say also that this last week week has been a stressful one.
What do you think? Should I keep taking magnesium or change it to magnesium glycinate? Should I start taking bisoprolol too or only mag is fine? Should I exercise normally too? Can I convince my cardiologist to consider me for ablation?
Additionally, I have a surgery to correct my nose, and my anesthesiologist has told me check with my cardiologist if it is fine to undergo the surgery with general anesthesia. Do you think I will have no problem?
Thank you very much, I know they are a lots of questions but I would be very greatful if someone can help me.
