Q: Supra ventricular tachycardia post ablation symptoms

I was disgnosed with SVT (supra ventricular tachycardia) when I was 15 years old and soon after had a cardiac ablation to take care of the problem however, the tissue needing to be "lasered" out was too close to my heart node and therefore, they were only able to get some of the tissue.  I am now 21 and have been having rapid heart beats like that of the SVT and noticing a lot of fatigue - could they be connected?

Hi Bevans,


I recommend contacting your physician to discuss the symptoms you're experiencing.  Her is a link to some information on tachycardia -
