I've always had PVC's and PAC's. I've had stress echo's and wore an event monitor many times. This last time my cardiologist said they have never been anything to worry about but it is a scary thing anyway. I exercise alot so I worry about exercising. This time he decided he was going to refer me to a electrophysiologist (sp). I met with him the same day. Great doctor. He said he saw them and they weren't dangerous either but some people are more aware of them than others. I guess I would fit into that category. He said its an electrical problem in the heart and most meds really don't work. He said if it was such a problem in my life then he would do an ablation. I read up on it and even though I know its done a million times a day I'm still scared to have it done. I guess the thought of a foreign object in heart worries me. Has anyone out there had this procedure done and if so I really would appreciate any feedback from those that can help me.
Thanks so much,

I thought it was great with the improvement shown.Then I switched hospital and the new doctor ordered an MRI(with contrast) last month that showed an LVEF of only...
