I went to have a cardioversion this morning, my heart had been going haywire since mid September and leaving me feeling drained. As they were about to put the cannula in my hand to start the procedure, the AF nurse shouted 'Wait'. I had gone back into normal sinus rhythm!! Now I know I wasn't that way on Monday when I had my pre procedure ECG, or yesterday morning because I checked my pulse. However, yesterday evening at my daughters I felt really bright and perky and we discussed if having a cardioversion while I was feeling so well was a good idea as it may send me back into feeling awful again, but decided to leave the decision in the hands of those who knew best. I just can't believe my luck!!!!
I asked the AF nurse if I changed to Rivoxerban (cant spell) would it affect my having further cardioversions in any way and she said yes, if I took that I would have to have a camera down to check I had no blood clots beforehand. I can tell you it's made me want to stay on warfarin now, especially as I'm prone to needing cardioversions.
Best wishes to everyone - I'm on cloud nine!
