Disappointed to report that I went back into AF again on Thurs just 4 months post my last DCCV & 11 months post my 3rd ablation. I don't know where this 'came from'-- just woke up at 1am with very disturbing fast AF.Took 5mg Bisoprolol but it was an hour before things calmed down a bit. Didn't sleep.Decided I would take further 2.5mg Bisop. at 8am but at that time my BP was 77/60 so decided against it as I was also feeling a bit ' spaced out ' . Took some fluid ' onboard' which eventually raised systolic to 100. Time to put 'Plan B ' into action so phoned GP's surgery for advice & was asked to come in for ECG etc. As a result GP phoned local hosp. & spoke to AMU consultant who advised me to come in to be checked out & to take 2.5 mg Bisop. straight away.( not surprisingly, given my history , he knows me quite well! )Went to AMU at about 1pm & was eventually given IV Amiodarone
which didn't do anything so DC cardioversion arranged for next morning. Reverted to NSR with one zap& now await follow up with EP. I'm sure he will be very pleased to see me again ( ?! ). That was my 12th cardioversion & I feel that i have almost had enough. Ep thinks that the trigger for my AF ' might be an unusual focus, being SVC, common left atrial appendage or coronary sinus'. Can't pretend to understand that! Anyway it looks like a further ablation is on the cards. A part of me wishes that Ihad never gone down the ablation route. Does anyone else feel like this?
