    [ablation failed now what?]

    Hello, I am so glad i found this web sight. 2 weeks ago i had the alcohol septal ablation done and the first day they said it went great. The second day they informed me that the gradient had returned to where it was before. Now they are wanting to look at other things that may be causing my symptoms. ie shorness of breath, weariness and so so on. I had my surgery done at methodist hospital in indianapolis and they have not done many there. i also now have some chest pains since the ablation and they are basically telling me these are in my head. there is only one dr there that thinks open heart surgery is the next option. i do not take drugs well, my body reacts strangely to them. im kind of scared and nervous about this. i said they wanted to look at other things im going to have an upper and lower gi soon and other invasive procedures. why didnt they do these first? i need advice from others who have been where i am.

    thank you
