Saw my Cardiologist on Monday. Holter monitor in about 6 weeks for 24hrs then almost certain referral to an EP for an Oblation.
Today I had my Echocardiogram where I got an unwanted surprise. I was told that one of my atrium is larger than the other meaning that Cardioversions may not keep me in sinus rhythm for long. First one was late November last year followed by my second on 4th Jan, just 6 weeks later.
On Monday night, my heart went nuts again, thankfully not going over 90bpm and reverted back 3 hours later, but I really thought I was about to go into AF again. No problems since..... yet, (that's the worrying bit). At least there's an answer - Oblation.
Can I please ask, if you're offered two hospitals to have the procedure, can I insist on which hospital I want, (under NHS)? My choices are Stoke or Leicester. I've been treated at Glenfield, Leicester before, and the hospital has a superb reputation. Also, what about EP's? My Cardiologist will sort it for me, but if I find, or am recommended a particular EP, can I/should I request him or trust my Cardio's judgement?
