I am new to these boards, I went to the Electrophysiologist yesterday and they are going to put in the Medtronic Implantable Loop Recorder. How painful is the procedure? I have quite a long cardiac history, 27 yr old, PMHx: Bradycardia, SVT, Neurocardiogenic syncope, PVC's. We have tried the beta blockers and the digoxin. We are hoping that the ILR will give a definite answer as to what is going on.

Thanks for any information you can give me on this.
