I'm 16 years old and have enjoyed a so far decent sporting career. An impressive rugby talent at my age means I was selected to represent my county.
However, after roughly two years of occassional attacks of SVT I was told I could no longer do strenuosus sport till I have had the ablation surgery.
My cardiologist has not been specific and I am desperate to know if I can continue my sport if the surgery is successful??
I have been at the gym 3-4 times a week doing 20 mins running and 1.30hrs weights and have had no attacks what so ever. Only on 12.5 mg atenolol and apparently just mild SVT.
Any ideas??Details on the surgery will also help as I am extremely nervous.
Can you tell me what was the exactly caused those attacks of supra-ventricular tachycardia (SVT)? What was the precise diagnosis of your heart rhytam disorder?
You can probably continue with the sport activities after the successful surgery.
