Off to Harefield Hospital tomorrow for my first ablation. AF started in September 2013, and medication has helped but constant chest pains. Reading everyone's comments have really helped and not worried about it in the slightest. AF readings have been between 180 and 225 on occasions. My consultant in Taunton was excellent and got me the OP within 1 week of seeing him. Unfortunately Bristol has a long waiting list. Will let you know how it goes.
