Just got back in from cardiologist appointment. Saw an underling who declared my Af was rather troublesome ( you don't say) she ummed and ahhed, had not read my notes from the echo to see that they had advised that my drugs be changed. The slozem has not worked so I have been put on diogoxin and ramipril. She feels I need to be referred to an EP ( you don't say) I informed her that I insisted that my gp did this , and thankfully he has. She is going to write to EP and thinks ablation may be the answer. My ef is 30% and she does not see this as a problem! feels they need to get heart rate down first. She is going to get a 24 hour holster organised , this may take 6 weeks so suggested I take my pulse every day. I can't take certain tablets because of my asthma but she feels these may work. Would you risk them if you had underlying asthma but have not had an asthma attack for 12 years?
