My second cardioversion on 1/9/14 has failed...I am so disappointed I have been suffering AF for 18 months now and it's driving me crazy and I wonder if it will ever be sorted. I was so optimistic in the beginning and was very positive.
After reading some of these posts I see some people have persistent AF some permanent I don't know which I have. What I do know is my AF is there all the time it ever stops !!! and it is affecting my life...I get breathless, tired. wheezy and can't walk very far.
I am waiting for an appointment to see an EP about an ablation and I am really scared but do want it doing. The relieve of being in NSR was unbelievable I was like a new woman, not like the 100 year old I had felt like before.
Sorry to moan, I know they say 'don't let it rule your life' but it's there all the time stopping me from living my life. If they offer me another cardioversion while I'm waiting I would jump at the chance even though my first one lasted 6 months and the second only 2 months.
Thanks for reading and letting me sound off..I'm 52 and work full time ( when I can).
