well i have (had) a minor issue with my heart. whenever i ran, like really hard core ran, my heart would go from about 100 (normal) to 250 beats per minute (very abnormal) in a split second and would stay at 250 beats per minute for ages and ages untill it randomly stoped and went back to about 80, (goes from about 180 - 80 in 1 beat time LOL) (“supraventricular tachecardia”, perhaps my spelling is wrong)
basicly an electrical short circuit in my heart, an extra pathway that goes in a loop really. so the brain stops controling the heart rate if it goes off.
so anyway i got on the waiting list about 1.5 years ago- 2 years ago. lots of waiting, more waiting LOL…
well tuesday was my appointment, and they just cut a tiny little cut in my leg and stuck 4 tubes up my viens to my heart, and triggered my heart rate via drugs and electrical signals.
the goal was for the doctor to Find, and Destroy the malfunctioning part of my heart.
4 tubes i think were used to locate the issue then 1 was used to burn the tiny patch of my heart that was a problem.
after many ECG’s (you know the sticky patch things they connect wires to) and stuff in the morning, a groin shave, and an IV line, they took me down to the opperating theater on a bed (luxury service really) and then put me onto a really flat hard bed with 4 tv’s an X-ray machine above my heart, and a second room off the side with a big glass window.
about 5 doctors were in the theater with me, and another 5 in the technicians room off to the side using their computers)
the tv screens, 1 was for the ECG readings from the 12 sticky elecrical things on me, 1 was for the internal tubes (not in yet but soon to be), the other two were for the X-ray machines images, the x-ray machines moves around under control from the other room.
well they gave me local anisthetic, and one dose of sedatives, then made two cuts in my groin (i could feel them still) (BTW i was awake the whole time pretty much)
then they started stickng tubes up my leg, and OMG they feel fucked up, i was squirming and laughing a bit, i mean its not often you get tubes in your veins going to your heart. then i asked for some more sedatives LOL. so they kept pumping me the sedatives over the next hour or so. but i was still very much awake.
well they started giving me bags of an adrenaline type thing to trigger a heart episode of high speed heart action. because they ahd increased by blood pressure to get the utbe in my viens when my heart rate increased from about 80 to 250 BPM it felt like it was gonna pop out of my chest (my chest was of course not cut open because everything was done via my groin, through a tiny tiny hole, so no scars at all, not even a stitch)
well they had full control over my heart rate, and were giving it a damn good thrashing, me of course feeling pretty damn funny. always smiling coz it was a pretty good show.
well my heart went into fibulation and was beating rather randomly, i felt totally fine (probably the sedatives) and could easily feel that my heart had a strange rythym (it was totally awsome actually) well the last thing i heard was.
“well we have found the problem, but i can’t continue with your heart as it is now”
next thing i remember i think i am in the hospital ward, randomly asking the nurse somthing (i hope it was “whats the time” and not somthing really stupid) then going back to sleep coz fuckit those drugs are good shit and desirve a good sleeping to.
then later a doctor comes in and checks my wound on my groin to see if its not bleeding and stuff, i was half out then too, and i think i had a semi boner from random earlierness (but hey i really have no idea coz i was so out on drugs, and i bet they get it all the time. not that i was attracted to him, because honestly it was from earlier before he was there, and besides i’m not gay LOL)
then later the actual doctor comes in who was the cheif of it all. by this time i was fine, and he told me that they used the zapper on me and that is what the mark on my chest was (lol its still there over two days later, big square fucker)
well anyway, i had some good food (icecream was fantastic) and then was allowed to go home (just a few hours after it all, shows what modern technology does) getting out of my hospital gown i noticed about 30 of those electrical things on me (man i had sooo many, they had added another 18 or so since i lost consciouness from a good dose of drugs just before the zapper)
well anyway i looked down to notice a big puddle of relly yucky blood and stuff on the bed, and a big patch of blood on my Pj pants LOL. so i took them off and left them for the nurse’s to clean up LOL (so nice of me)
well basicly it was all very unexciting and rather boring (LOL actually i was grinning the whole day, it was fantastic)
i am fine now, had only two days off university for a heart opperation.
hope you enjoyed, and did i say OMG the whole thing felt sooo weird, weird but kinda good, because anything that is weird IMO is good, not many people will get to experience that kind of feeling.
