Few weeks ago my cardiologist prescribed Amioderone, saying it would increase the chances of my second ablation for PA being effective. It does seem to help the horrid sensations of AF in my chest.
But, concerned about side effects. Feeling generally unwell and last 2 days severe pain in my right shoulder, worse on breathing in.
I'd be interested to hear others' experiences of this drug? Cardiologist said was a 'last resort' measure for woman my age but risks worth it, on balance.
Btw, INR went to over 9 & had severe bruising everywhere & blood in urine - the hospital gave my IV vitamin K, but still all over place. Maybe it's not bad thing Hammersmith just postponed ablation from 23 June until July!
