Fairly new to this... How normal is it for significant heart failure to be caused by AF. My partner had cardioversion about 2 months ago. However on his check up recently the ECG showed that his EF was still down to 20%. We do not know of course whether his AF caused the heart failure or vice versa. Plus he has a lung condition (bronchietasis) which may be contributing - the consultant can't be sure.
He is due to have more tests in August to see if there's any improvement. I suppose I'm just wondering if other people have had this level of heart failure and seen improvement several months after cardioversion?
