Well what a journey I've had this last 10 days!! Things have definitely started to look up since joining this forum and sharing my fears and worries with you all. My appointment with the registrar yesterday provided me with two options. The first to be cardioverted again and put on aminodrone and the second a referral for an ablation. I surprised myself as I didn't hesitate to opt for the ablation. Having read a lot of positive comments about this procedure from the forum my decision was easy. I have been told that there is a 60 - 65% success rate so I'm just gonna go for it. I reached rock bottom just before I found you all and feel I am now slowly climbing back up. Okay so if it doesn't work I'll deal with it but you can bet your bottom dollar I am going into this with a positive attitude. I've been take off sotalol amd am now back on bisoprolol and feel much better - it obviously suits me. My family and friends have noticed such a difference in me since joining this forum and reading all your healthcare stories. I now realise I am not alone and that in itself has made me feel sooooo much better.
