I just wanted to share this with the community on here. I was hospitalised for a week 9 months ago, with a permanent AF heart rate racing away at 170 bpm. Needless to say, it took its toll on my body. I could hardly walk 10 metres without feeling awful. This was a life-changer for me, as I loved my hills and the outdoors. The road to recovery has been long and painful, but I have been determined to get back to how I used to be. The medicaiton has finally stablised the heart and I await my referral to an EP. We went camping at Glen Etive at the weekend, and I managed to climb a munro - first one since the attack. It wasn't easy, and I suffered the next day, but very very elated to have managed it.
