Hello, I'm new here. I am 76 and have AF. I've had it for a year now and have had 4 overnight stays in hospital. The latest was last Wednesday. I've now been put on Warfarin and Bisoprolol. The hospital doctor advised me that the AF attacks will get more frequent and probably end up as a permanent condition, with no let up. This has really alarmed me. Has anyone here been advised of this? I'm also type 2 diabetic, so my chances of another heart attack or stroke are increased. Not a good outlook for me.
