I started AF about 3 years ago and was a frequent visitor to A&E often having to stay in hospital for a couple of days. These attacks decreased as I learned to be more vigilant about my meds but my last AF event was about 6 months ago.
I am an AF'er who generally stays in rhythm with AF attacks happening maybe once a week and some of these leading to an A&E visit.
I was in hospital at least once every 3 months.
2 years ago my cardiologist was ready to ablate - I wasn't able to have it doneata that point due to circumstances beyond my control.
Since I started magnesium supplements about 3 months ago I have had two 10 minute flutters about a month ago and thats been it. The only change for has been supplements and I am quite confident thats made the difference.
I know it's not a cure of course but there has been a huge reduction in severity and length of attacks.
My AF's are often exercise induced and just half an hour of decent gardening would often result in an AF that night.
I have been exercising at a level where I am puffed and sweating most days in the last couple of weeks and no AF at all.
I guess my question is - if I am not AF'ing regularly and have not done so for 6 months would I still be considered a candidate for ablation?
TBH I am not quite sure what the criteria are apart from regular AF's.
