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.

  • 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.
