I've learned so much reading these posts. This is a wonderful group - this is my first post. I am 52, female and was diagnosed with AFib in March 2014. I had a PVI ablation in August 2014. I recently finished wearing a 30 day monitor which showed lots and lots of PAC's. I thought it was afib since it felt the same as before the surgery. Saw my EP yesterday and he's not sure what's going on. Could be heart is still settling or could be "a hole in the fence" that will eventually need some "spot welding". We decided I will "tread water" for 3 more months and see how my heart behaves. I am on Flecainide and Diltiazam. Good news since no AFib I am off blood thinner - I was taking Eliquis. My questions for the group are: has anyone else had this happen (PAC's) after ablation? And should I be concerned the PAC's could lead to a return of Afib? It is worrisome that I can't tell the difference. One final comment - I was also diagnosed with anemia about 1 month ago - would this cause the extra beats?
