Ventricular tachycardia

Alright, In October I noticed my heart kept racing really fast for no reason at all.. I went to the doctor and they made me wear a heart monitor for 1 month. While on the monitor my heart would race and the info would be sent to the doctors. well, the day before I was to send it back I have 3 heart racing episodes, the last one the heart monitor people called and told me to go to the emergency room ASAP.
I went and they got my readings and found out my heart was racing at 245BPM.
They sent me to a cardiologist the next day and they discovered I had Ventricular tachycardia and that I would need to have a cathater ablation where they go in and cartarize the problem in your heart where it is mis-firing. I had this 3 weeks ago. They told me that i was to young to let this go, I am only 26. They were surprise I went through pregnancy with out having a problem. This was something I was born with too.
Anyways, long story short..i needed this done before even thinking about getting pregnant can go into cardiac arrest when the heart gets that high. No time for the blood to even pump out of the heart, causing pooling.
I am glad I got it down and that I can now get 8 months
