Firstly Thanks to all who sent best wishes to me before my AV node ablation on Monday.
Well had the procedure done without sedation and done in less than an hour, accompanied by Sam Smith CD, courtesy of theatre staff at Freeman Hospital Newcastle.
Everything appears to be good and I feel fine total contrast to my last four ablations.
Now totally dependent on my pacemaker but if it means I don't suffer any fainting episodes or dizziness etc I really don't care.
I have reduced my Metoprolol to 50 mg twice daily , continue with Rivoroxiban daily but now have Ramipril thrown in to the mix, because I am young for a pacemaker?? 49!! I have longer hopefully to be reliant on it so controlling my BP , preserve cardiac function and to prevent muscle from thickening all good if it helps with my AF which has worn me down for the last five years.
this website has been invaluable to me over the last few weeks and lovely people who contribute.
