Have had permanent AF for many years. I've been free since pacemaker implant 2 years ago which allows me to take higher doses of digoxin, bisoprolol and also on warfarin and lipitor. Had a TIA 16yrs.ago (not on warfarin then) Am on the upward path of 70 yrs old. My doctor has just retired who knew my medical history so well and I'm quite scared of the change and maybe ageism issues. .
