Hi Folks, I had my second ablation on Friday 16th Jan at Leeds General Infirmary, ward 14. All went well, even if I did go into AF about half way through the RF proceedure. On the penultimate burn the AF stopped, it was like a light switch had been turned off. My EP said this proves ablation works for AF, I for one, am not arguing. I thanked the staff on Saturday morning before being kicked out and I would like to thank them here too. They were fantastic and looked after me with kindness, humour and better food than the first time.
I know this AF business gets to people. It turned my world inside out until a certain amount of acceptance and understanding brought me back down to earth and I learned to live with it. So to those of you who are new to this topsy-turvy world, please, never loose hope and with help and support from this site and your medical team there are answers to the dilemma of AF.
