How is the WPW ablation procedure done?

Does it hurt to get an ovarian ablation done?

Does it hurt to get  an ovarian ablation done?

Not common: If you a talking about ablating ovarian cysts, as is sometimes done for pcos - the ablation itself would cause minimal pain. The laparoscopy done to access the ovaries would cause mild pain that would normally be controlled with oral pain medications. If you mean an endomatrial ablation, there would likely be minimal pain during or after the procedure, as most are done under general anesthesia. ...Read more

I had ablation done a year ago just got period is that normal?

I had ablation done a year ago just got period is that normal?

It can happen: While many women will stop having their periods after an endometrial ablation, the rate of amenorrhea (no periods) is less than 50%). So, it is entirely possible that you may start to menstruate even years after having had an ablation. If it is regular, it is nothing to be concerned about. If it is irregular, extremely heavy or very long, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

I had a dnc and an ablation done 1 month ago. How soon will my body go into menopause?

I had a dnc and an ablation done 1 month ago. How soon will my body go into menopause?

Depends on age: An ablation may or may not completely stop your cycle. Time will tell on that. An ablation is really designed to decrease heavy bleeding. Now traditionally menopause is when the ovaries stop producing significant amounts of hormones, usually around age 51. (hot flashes, mood swings, sleep issues, vaginal dryness, etc...) an ablation has nothing to do with that. ...Read more

I'm getting typical palpitations of around 700 - 1000 a day, causing dizzyness. can ablation be done to cure this?

Palpitations~: Hello ~ that depends on what is causing the palpitations, atrial/ventricular ectopics or runs of PAT or VT. Ablation is not done for single atrial or ventricular ectopics. It is most useful in ablation of aberrant electrical pathways between atrium and ventricle, and so causing early escape of the ventrical and this causes TACHYCARDIA, Rapid HR. You must go and see a Cardiologist. He'll explain. t ...Read more
