About 3 months ago I was diagnosed with left fascicular ventricular tachycardia and was ablated.
The electrophysiologist was happy with the procedure because he was able to induce the VT (before that I had another EP study where this hadn't be possible).
I was cleared to return to sports one week after the procedure and then even to competitive sports 6 weeks after. I was also put on verapamil. Except for some PVCs here and there and chest discomfort I was fine overall.
However, yesterday during an intense training session (martial arts), I felt my heart going into ventricular tachycardia while I was resting. It lasted only for a few minutes and stopped on its own. Also, the symptoms were not nearly as heavy as what I experienced before. I had two v-tach episodes before the ablation and both times I felt short of breath and rather weak overall. I did feel the same fast heart rhythm and heavy pounding in my chest though.
I cannot say for sure at 100% that it was v-tach but it definitely felt like it.
I have an appointment with the electrophysiologist next week but I wanted to have some feedback from people who may have gone through a similar experience. Can this happen even if the ablation was successful? Does it mean I may require another ablation?
Although the doctors told me this was a benign condition, it's still quite annoying and scary because it concerns my heart. I don't want to be scared to take the plane for a long trip or be worried about having to call an ambulance whenever I exercise strenuously...
Thanks in advance for your help!
