after 3 yrs since diagnosed with AF i now feel i have rejoined the human race. I had cardioversions, ablations and every test under the sun. Each corner turned presented a new obstacle. Last December a cox maze procedure and open heart surgery to remove a 6 by 7 cm tumour from my atria septum and another area, was i thought the last hurdle had been surmounted. Well more drugs and a pacemaker followed. The drugs working on the arrythmias well. Then pacemaker check revealed my own pacemaker is not functioning at all so now two parts of it are programmed one to stop my heart rate from dropping and another part to raise it on exertion. I have this week returned to the gym a big loss in my life i am on a high. No my heart not functioning fully but hey ho i feel great. Keep plodding on folks its often worth the wait Good luck to you all especially Beancounter xxx
