  • Alcohol ablation scheduled

    After many many tests and doctor appointments, my husband and I have decided to go ahead with the Alcohol ablation. Lisa has been so helpful in finding a good doctor that was closer to me. This website is awesome with so much information and friendship.

    The procedure is scheduled for Tues morning at Methodist Hosp in Houston. My kids are coming in to be with me and I feel like God has
    been taking care of me in this time. I do have a peace about this but
    dread the procedure. I would like to hear from some people that
    have been through it so I would know exactly what is going to happen.
    I'm a huge wimp. They said they want me awake but will they give
    something for pain at some time????? How long does it hurt? What
    should I expect over the next few days? The thought that I might
    feel better is awesome. Someone mentioned not being able to walk across Wal-mart.......oh my goodness, its been so long since I could do that.
    Thank you all so much for the support of this website. I hope you know how much it has meant to me.

      Hi Martha
      I have never had this procedure, although I have had a myectomy twice. You are in my prayers. Please keep us informed of your recovery.

            Hi Martha,

            I read where your A/A went beautfully and how wonderful you feel. Jan 2003 I had my Septal Ablation done MUSC in Charleston S.C. I have felt like a new person ever since. I'm still bugged by the PVC's and once in a while "Black Spell", but other wise my life has changed so much for the better. I wish you continued success.

            P.S. ....That was the first thing I noticed, was I could breath deep again after it was done.

            The BEST is yet to come !!
