Its OK, my rivaroxaban is doing its stuff, it is a swimming class!
I felt I needed to do something more structured than pottering in the garden to get fitter, specially after reading about AFers whose complaint is they can't work out in the gym as much etc etc (sickening, frankly) and as I can't walk far my husband and I decided swimming was the answer so to start off we signed up for the aforementioned Stroke Improvement Class.
I thought I'd check with my GP first, she said if I promised to stop as soon as I had any discomfort I could 'have a go'. With those encouraging words ringing in my ears I trotted (OK limped) off last week. I had a great time but established that my main problem is my breathing.
This week I nearly didn't go because I had two days of asthma earlier but I felt better so I 'had a go'. Naughty me. No prizes for guessing I am now in AF.......
Question is, was that a one off? Shall I try again? And if I keep trying will I get fitter or sicker?
Of course I shall try again but I'm interested to hear your experiences.
