After 6 weeks of feeling pretty much fantastic I had my first run of AF this morning. I must say I barely noticed it. Had my morning 100MG of Flecainide and took the dog for a walk and on mt return I felt the slightest of flutters and realised I was in AF. Fortunately taking an extra 100MG of Flec put me back into NSR within about 40 minutes. I know this is to be expected, but I can't help but feel the slightest bit disappointed. Other than extra beats a couple of days after my ablation I have had no problems at all. I suffered very little after affects from the procedure and was back in full swing with my life. It's strange, but for the past week I have been very aware of my heart beat. My pulse rate hasn't changed, but I can more or less feel every beat when I'm in bed the pounding in my ears has been that strong. I started taking magnesium supplements around the same time as the pounding started, so assumed it may have been something to do with that.
My EP pre-warned me there was a strong chance another procedure would be required and I have more or less accepted that, just had it it my mind I may have a good year or so before that was needed. Still onwards and upwards.
