Well it was a six month wait but it finally arrived. I received a phone call from my EP's secretary last Wednesday 19/02/14 and all done by this Tuesday 25/02/14. I am part of a study group sponsored by a company who are promoting using gold plated catheters. The actual procedure was as per a normal ablation but involved me having an MRI scan of my brain pre and post ablation to determine any signs of ACE ( this I think stands for asymptomatic cerebral emboli ). Mr Murray from the Freeman Hospital was very informative with regards to everything involved and the procedure was successful. Of course the next few months will be the acid test so to speak but fingers crossed and lets see what happens. Will update as necessary. One bit of advice from me is take the bull by the horns and don't let AF rule your life. Good luck to everyone.
