I have had exercise induced PAF for 18 months and with a CHADVASC score of 0, wasn't given warfarin. Once we decided to do an ablation, I went on warfarin and will be on it at least until 5-6 months post ablation. My EP/cardiologist says that when I go back to see him 5 months post ablation, if everything is well, he'll think about taking me off the warfarin. My thoughts are: if I no longer have AF, then there's no reason to stay on warfarin, but it seems that lots of you remain on warfarin post ablation and I'm wondering whether I should too.
