Well, I've finally got a date for my first ablation (mid-April), after a frustrating wait of approx 5 months. My INR has been fairly stable up to 3 weeks ago (2.2 to 2.8), then It jumped to 3.8 and has fluctuated between 3.1 and 3.8 since, despite reducing my warfarin by approx 25% under the guidance of my GP. The fluctuations were caused I think by a course of anti-biotics and steroids I was prescribed to clear a chest infection. My question is :- will this affect my planned ablation? I had 2 cardioversions cancelled last year because of being outside my goal INR range of 2 to 3
Can anyone advise please?
