What else can be done for my heart flutter. They have tried the shock treatment

Doctor's Assistant: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Yes there has been a history of heart disease. My health I think is pretty good for my age of 83

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a border line diabetic but have been in control of it. three and one half years ago I had 4 stints put in my heart. I never feel any pain in the chest or the fluttering of my heart. My problem is shortness of breath when I walk a short distance

Have you had any ablation done for it? Radiofrequency ablation can help you with tacchyarrhythmias like flutter.

You will need to seek help from Electrophysiologist or cardiologist to get it done.

Let me know if you have any further queries

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
