Hi, I was diagnosed with Lone Persistant AF last May. In July, I had an echocardiogram which indicated my heart was in fairly good shape. As far as I knew, I had not had the condition for very long, but could not be sure. Early in September I had a cardioversion and I am pleased to say that I am still in Sinus Rhythm. Earlier today, I had my review with my EP and he has discharged me back to my GP. He has said that it is impossible to know how long the CV will last, but there is a reasonable chance it might hold for a while. I know we are all different and that AF affects us all in different ways, and I am also aware that this is not a cure and that the situation could change at any time. However, I wanted to share it with the forum as the members here have been so supportive and I hope the news will encourage others in a similar situation.
Best wishes, John
