I had my 8 week follow up appointment on Friday and as my heart has been been behaving he wanted me off all meds by 15 March which will be 3 months post ablation. I was on 150mg flecanide, 2.5 bisoprolol and 20mg rivaroxiban. I dropped 50mg flecanide on Friday and wondered how best to reduce the rest. I am nervous as the pills are a crutch. I mentioned that my heart rate was up since the ablation and he said that can happen and the ablation can change your autonomic rate but should go back to normal after a few months. When stopping the bisoprolol, which I plan to do last, will my heart rate increase even more. He wants to see me again in 6 months and will give me a 24hr monitor before this appointment. Thank you as always for your help and support
