Hi all. I am 37 and was diagnosed with paroysmal AF, Atrial Flutter and one episode of SVT in September 2013 after 6 months of palpitations and dizziness (had 24 monitor on for 2 week which picked up the arrythmias). I have no other health problems and Echocardiogram was clear. Was put in bisoprolol 2.5mg once a day which has been great. No side effects and no dizziness - feel the odd palpitations though now and then. Was also put on asprin which I have been badgering my EP to change to Warfarin but after requesting second opinions and seen my own dr and two more cardiologists was told as I was a 0 CHADS score I didn't need it - I am still continuing to fight that decision. I have been very down since being diagnosed but have tried to get my head round things. I have 3 small children and am separated from my husband. I was in doubts about taking on the mortgage with my condition but I bit the bullet and am going through the process of remortgaging. I am worried about getting life insurance / mortgage protection / income protection but have looked on internet and some insurers will do it. What does everyone else do about life insurance / mortgage protection / income protection? Who have you got cover with? I;m worried that if something happens and I cannot work, I will lose my house. Also I have been offered an ablation for my SVT which my EP says should 99% cure get rid. Has anyone else had an ablation for SVT? I'm very nervous. Never had an operation before. Any advice on anything would be appreciated (sorry for the long message)
