Tamponade

Hi

I wonder if anyone remembers me?

I had an Ablation in January 2014 which resulted in a Tamponade, making me lose 1.25 litres of blood.

After a lot of thought I decided to have a second Ablation in May 2014 and I am pleased to say that I have been A.Fib free since.

It goes to show there is light at the end of the tunnel.

It is like being a different person, you forget what being normal is.

So glad you went through with it Chris. You are now a member of the "I did it club" and long may you remain in NSR. I'm nearly seven years now and worth every minute.

That's brill news. Weirdest thing I found was that I couldn't feel my heart at all afterwards for a few years. Just a wonderful silence.

I had my 2nd ablation on 3rd Feb at Q E Bham, back at home now and so far all seems o.k. although very sore. They found nodes on both left and right hand sides of the ventricles which apparently is quite unusual. Best wishes to all.
