Hi, my first part on here - yay for me!
I was diagnosed, about three months ago, as having persistent atrial fibrillation.
After seeing a cardiologist it was decided that I would be booked in for electro cardioversion to reset natural rhythm.
Anyway, yesterday was D Day, so I went in as instructed at noon. The procedure finally got underway at about 4:30 but from there it went to ****.
They didn't give me a general anaesthetic for cardioversion but sedated me using something called Midazolam. (They normally give an 8mg dose) - I guess I must have a high tolerance to sedatives as they gave me, 45mg of the stuff and then morphine too as I was still chatting away!
Anyway, they zapped my heart twice but it didn't fix it - feel a bit low today as I was really hoping it would work. Felt high as a kite last night though!
Anyone else had similar? What should I expect next?
