hello all! I am very new to all of this, but hoping , after reading everyones problems , worries, and success stories and the positive comments given to others that I too may be advised and reassured via this valuable forum I have found!
I have suffered paroxysmal AF for around 7 years it only kicking in once or twice a year and not lasting very long , until March 14 the bout of AF began and never stopped, I suffered a minor TIA and as I work in the local hospital, seen a physician immediately and was put on biosoprolol and rivaroxaban, all ok! it took 7 months before I seen a cardiologist who added amioderone to the mix, and put me on the list for Cardioversion!!!! It's now middle of February, still not had Cardioversion , and in nearly a year have seen cardiologist for a total of 20 mins. If all this sounds about right I won't carry on with the complaint that my colleagues in the hospital are urging me to write, and wait. But I am getting worried at the length of time on this awful drug amioderone, what is it supposed to be doing? I feel no different from before I started on it. Sorry to go on, but as many of you know no-one else understands. Thanks for letting me get it off my chest..
