year as that was all that was evident at the time. It appeared to be a success, but symptons returned after about 5 weeks and I had to go back on to a beta blocker again. Since that time I developed Atrial flutter too, so felt pretty much constantly in AF. Heart rate ranging from low 40's to 160 odd with no happy medium. I felt completely knackered all the time and it did get me down as after living with AF for 6 years, on medication to control it - until November 2013 when I passed out at work for 3 minutes. To today, on 2 heart regulating tablets, 1 beta blocker, a tablet for fluid retention (for swelling in leg, feet and lungs) and warfarin every day - back to hospital for an echocardiogram soon to see how everything is functioning and then to see my consultant. I am having ok days, and not so good days and today is one of those days. My heart feels 'tired'... and I feel unwell with it. Has anybody experienced my kind of situation, can you tell me how you got through these early days? I know everything is 'healing and scarring' inside and I'm trying to keep positive about it all.
