Wolff–Parkinson–White Syndrome - anyone have/had this?

Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome (WPW) is one of several disorders of the conduction system of the heart that are commonly referred to as pre-excitation syndromes. While the majority of individuals with WPW remain asymptomatic throughout their entire lives, there is a risk of sudden cardiac death associated with the syndrome.....

My DS was just diagnosed with this and the heart specialist will be performing an ablation this Tuesday. Does anyone have any info they can share, especially about the procedure that he is having done?

Wendy said it perfectly.

Am checking with a doctor for any info. Of course, it is not her field.

I have never heard of this condition. I can only imagine how difficult this news must be to your family. Thinking of you and sending good thoughts your way.

I've heard of it, I don't know much about it. Good luck to your son with his procedure. *hug*

My cousin who is in his 20s had that but I can offer no advice. His was diagnosed while on tour in Iraq and he passed out. Thank goodness there were people there to help him. He had a procedure to correct it and has been home ever since with his wife and twin boys. This happened over a year ago.

....well, it turns out that he was having a physical to try to make the NYPD and FAILED! If you know my DS and have seen him, he's pretty much a perfect specimen of health [115 over 72 PB, 150's cholesterol range, less than 1% body fat, low sodium, low sugar, low carbs diet, not too much red meat, no smoking, works out every day] but he failed because they heard an abnormality in the heart (an arythmia) so he had to go to a specialist, get and EKG, a stress test (he only turned 24 in July), so it was actually a blessing in disguise tht he failed the physical....

...sooo, was he discharged? Is he unable to work? My DS thinks that once he gets this procedure done, he will be able to continue his application with the NYPD....

Hugs , my friend!

I know you must be terrified - I know I would be! I have never heard of this condition, either. Sending you prayers, hugs, pixie dust... Everything I've got!
Please keep us updated. I wish I lived closer. I'd come sit with you at the hospital.

I know how you feel. My DS had a bone tumor when he was 5. It was SO hard feeling so helpless. PM me any time you need to talk! I never sleep, so I'm usually around.

I know it's impossible, but try not to worry. Someone told me once that worry is like rocking in a rocking chair - you do a lot of work, but don't get anywhere.

I'll be praying.
