An update on yesterday's email.
I first went in to hospital with AF as they had discovered that I had a9 sec pause and needed a pacemaker. Pacemaker fitted and put on amiodarone was admitted on the 16 Nov. Then came out about a week later. Had a flu jab. Went back into hospital with bad AF was put on a digoxin drip . Legs swelled up so had water tables. Feeling really awful all this time. No appetite felt sick and was actually sick . Then had a fall in the shower room bashed head and hip and couldn't get up. Had to shout for help as all bells and strings were out of reach. Had ct scan imeadiately and nothing broken. ( still hurts though ). Developed terrible cough came home and stayed in bed. My son stayed with us over Christmas and they took it in turns to be with us and my daughters.
Then the Dr decided that I was in deep depression and gave me tablets to take. I took one and it made me feel terrible, he also gave me diazepam and I slept for most of the time. After taking four tablets I couldn't face taking anymore. I knew my problem wasn't depresstion just feeling really,really ill. Then on Monday morning I woke with an appetite and felt realitively normal. Wonderful feeling after all this time.
Seeing the specialist on the 26th with a cadioversion a month later if still in AF . The pacemaker seems to have slowed the AF down. Will let you know what happens. Be well. Terry
