I have had 4 episodes of fast AF in the last 20 months each required cardio version using intravenous fleicanide to good effect. My last episodes were 3 weeks ago and 5 weeks ago ie 2 in the space of 2 weeks. Since then my AF has been particularly bad every day most of the day but not fast. I used to have months in between episodes were I felt very well but now I feel dreadful all the time and am now breathless also which I wasn't before my last cardioversion. Since my last cardio version I have been prescribed 7.5mgs bisoprolol instead of sotolol. I am also on 10mgs olmesartan and 5mgs amlodopine for raised BP. I am awaiting an appointment with a specialist cardiologist to discuss ablation. The thought of this procedure really scares me and I am hearing that it is not always effective. I am usually fit and active but this has really interfered with my lifestyle. Any advice for me would be very gratefully accepted. Anyone who has had an ablation I would really value your opinion on the procedure itself and how effective it was. Thank you
