My husband has been in hospital with persistent AF. His heart goes from 60 to 170. He has no other symptoms. He was admitted to hospital two weeks ago because he couldn't breathe. When he arrived he started vomiting. They were unable to make much headway even with rest and medication and talked about shocking his heart. Unfortunately, they found a clot in his heart and he is now on Apixaban with an appointment to see them at the end of the month. They then sent him home.
He's almost 60 and says he can't feel his heart at all and has no other symptoms.
Basically, I am very concerned, I know he's in a dangerous situation but I need to know what to expect. Basically, do people survive this severity of AF?
Thanks in advance.
