Just before Christmas I got the results of my extra tests back. The good news is that the ablation was completely successful – I definitely don’t have WPW anymore!
However, the tests did throw up a few little anomalies. It seems as though my heart has a mind of its own. Sometimes it’ll start racing for no reason – once when I was fast asleep! Sometimes it’ll skip a beat, like it’s just forgotten it had to do something. It seems as though these strange little moments of arrhythmia are to do with the ‘sinus’, the heart’s own electrical system, and therefore completely benign. So as long as I can cope with this rather silly behaviour – and as long as it’s not life-threatening, I can – then all is well for Zenia’s ticker.
