I'm on the waiting list for my ablation and the EP said it would be approx 12 weeks, he also referred me to my GP to start warfarin as a prerequisite, which I have no problem whatsoever with. 3 weeks after seeing the EP I got a letter to see my GP with a view to starting warfarin. My GP instructed me I will have to attend hospital to start warfarin and gave me an appointment request for me to contact the hospital. I have done all this, but the booking line I contacted couldn't give me an estimate of how long it will take to receive an appointment.
I'm going to contact the Anti Coagulation Clinic to see if they can give me a rough time, but my concern is my ablation date will be fast approaching and not having started anti coagulation yet how long do I have to be on it prior to my ablation? That's not taking into account getting it to the required level either.
