Ventricular Ablation Arrhythmias
Have an ICD that has now fired eight times over the last two years. Was on amiodarone, then toprol then sotalol, now after most recent three shocks (one on Jan 7, two on Jan 10 that also required two cardio versions and a week in ICU) am back on amiodarone and toprol. As doctors don't seem to like amiodarone (at least long term) and I don't like shocks, we are now considering a ventricular ablation cathertization.
I've seen all sorts of posts on atrial ablations, but want to know about ventricular ablations and ultimate success in reducing number of ICD firings and getting off amiodarone.

Your heart beats like a teenager in love.
But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
