Hi everyone , had my cardio version yesterday , heart a little stubborn took the three shocks to work !

Feel ok, chest feels a bit batterd but a small price to pay. Resting heart rate after was still ninty so that was a little disappointing has anyone else had the same? Still on warfarin for six weeks , digoxin dropped , verapermil until I see docs to sort bp out as v high. Resting now and praying it stays in normal rythumn for as long as ! X

Raised heart rate is normal and should gradually lower. but may take a while.

Hi - So glad all went well for you. I had my cardioversion two weeks ago and am still doing fine. I wont brag that I'm cured as it's early days yet. When I've gone three months with no paroxysmal AF I will feel more confident that it has succeeded. I dropped Digoxin a few days before and was I glad as it didn't agree with me at all. I've been a bit paranoid about what to eat now as I've discovered that anything sweet makes my heart beat stronger. Long may your new sinus rhythm continue.
