"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
An eternity in an hour.."

cons

  • its heart surgery that ultimately causes multiple traumas to the heart (burning) and potentially a puncture wound between atria
  • potentially awake for 6+ hours during the procedure
  • potentially under general anesthesia
  • low, but existing potential of irreversible cardiac damage that may result in leaving with a pacemaker
  • cost
  • my svt has been sporadic, largely a result of mental/emotional stress combined with too much physical exertion (triggered in the work place) and has responded well to adenosine and atenolol intervention
  • potential that the procedure may need to be repeated
  • if the procedure is successful, still need to address the potential for anti-anxiety medicine

pros

  • hopefully stops SVT episodes and the need for anti-arrhythmic medication(s)
  • safer to bear children
  • never have to worry about the condition being life threatening later in life
  • learn more about my own organ
  • i have fair health insurance now which would minimize the cost
