My partner is due to have his ablation next month. However, having read all your questions and blogs, he does not seem to be having appreciable negative effects on his lifestyle, as some of you have described.
He is in permanent AF but no longer has symptoms or feels out of breath or faint. He is taking Bisoprodol and has just started on Rivaroxaban (which this morning has given him the first nosebleed in his life!) in preparation for the ablation..
We just don't know what to do for the best. Will the ablation, if it works, set him up for a drug free rest of his life (he is only in his mid fifties)? Could it make things worse? If he doesn't have it now, will it be too late in the future? We have explored the other drugs but he was on amiodarone for too long and the other options don't suit him. I don't want to influence him or put any pressure on him but I want him to make the best decision for his future. I know you cant decide for us but members'' views would be much appreciated.
