Chicago, IL |
Flatlined during an ablation where the the heart rate monitor showed 274 bpm and doctor told the tech to turn up the pace to see what happens. I was already in VT storm and flatlined. Doctor later refuted cardiac arrest, did not disclose relevant details on the physicians report, in spite of confirmation by the crash team, my cardiologist, and pcp. Doctor never reviewed ICD programming. His boss discovered my ICD had not been programmed completely.

I went in for an initial visit with the doctor; he did not seem concerned with my condition.He did order a two week monitor for my heart. I had an appointment with my PC and he asked me about my test results; I told him I never heard back from Dr. V.. My PC found out my test results and insisted I needed to get back with Dr. V. I was told by the doctor that he would not help me. I found out from my PC that the doctor's records of my visit did not match my version. I have witnesses to this.

My first ablation was stopped half-way through when heart sac was punctured by a new, test catheter. I was not told for 90 days the full extent of this until my family doctor with the same hospital read the details during a follow-up visit. I massively hemorrhaged, flat-lined but never had this explained to me completely. The second ablation also had an incident whereby a lymph gland was punctured and drained extensively for a week. It was essentially ignored. Told I was one for the books.
