Having been in permanent AF for a year; and promised a cardioversion 10 months ago, I was beginning to feel a bit neglected. Together with my GP, I had got my BP up to a reasonable reading in the region of 114/72 by reducing one of my high BP drugs (Lisinoprol) from 40mg to 20mg daily. Certainly helped reduce the dizzy spells.
Yesterday, I had a call from the cardiology dept. asking me to get weekly blood tests, in order to provide them with four consecutive INR results of not less than 2.0. Then I will be called in for the procedure. Progress!
I'm a little anxious - also not too confident that anything permanent will come of it. Like an old car that's ticking along fairly well, this old chap would be happier not to be messed about, stopped and started and given an electrical jolt! However, I'm always positive.......watch this space.
