Had a lovely chat with Vicky with AFA today and we were discussing the fact that it's the AFib episodes that causes enlargement of the heart. As a result of our chat, I'm going to ask about having another Echo as one of the consultants when I was in Glenfield Hospital last November told me that my heart was slightly enlarged but it was reversible. I'm guessing it's not as simple as attacks stop, heart reduces, and all this goes away, lol?
My plan is to hopefully get through the next 6 months without an incident then see my Cardiologist about referring me to an EP for CA. If I have another attack before then, go straight for an ablation. I'm guessing, Bob, that you suggest having one sooner than later to minimise long term damage?
My Cardiologist told my on Sunday, that as I'm relatively young, (47), I'd have a 75-80% chance of success. Any thoughts gratefully received.
