After talking to my EP on the phone recently he advised me to stop taking Bisoprol prior to my pending ablation, as I was convinced it wasn't doing anything and didn't like the side effects from it. Also I had been more or less asymptomatic for several weeks and having had one date deferred this year for 2nd ablation after telling the docs at the pre-op clinic that I had been symptom-free for about 6 weeks, he thought it was a good idea.
Boy was I wrong! Since stopping it nearly two weeks ago I've had more episodes in that time than I've had in months, so it was obviously doing something for me. However, it definitely confirms that I do need the ablation, so am just waiting now for confirmation of the date.
So glad this site is there to inform and educate, also sometimes entertain by way of people's sense of humour, which bucks me up no end. Thanks all of you for helping me get through the last year, without you I'm not sure how I could have managed.
Looking forward to seeing some of you at the AFA Patients Day in October (AF permitting!).
