Hi All, I've just got back from seeing the EP at the Bristol Heart Institute, he has advised I am an ideal candidate for Ablation. I have PAF and have had 3 episodes the last year or so, the last one is where they picked up on AF. There is a waiting list of 5 month + but he wants me to start on warfarin and to be in therapeutic range prior to having the procedure, which he said will eat into those 5 months. He has also cut back on my Bisoprolol which was making me feel constantly drugged and breathless, and introduced a low dose of Flecainide. The EP was very personable and has given me confidence in this procedure, certainly much more than the cardio at my local hospital who tried to blow my symptoms away as nothing.
