SA Node Modification
30yr old with vasovagual syncope and POTS. I'm on Midodrine, ivabradine and propanolol with no relief. Underwent an ablation (unsure of what exactly--he said he ablated the signals that were firing first) 2 months ago with no relief. Fainting frequent times a week with a poor quality of life. My resting heart rate is in the 130s, standing it'll increase, then drop to the 30s sporadically. I have a SA Node Modification on Monday. I have been warned a pacemaker may be imminent. Anyone get a SA Node modification and ultimately needed a pacemaker? Did it happen fairly quickly after the modification? How did you know you needed one? After my ablation I had so much fluttering and discomfort I was constantly worried. You only have one heart, you know?
