I saw an EP on 14th April, privately, and although he suggested an ablation and ICD implant, it will only be used as a last resort. I have to try different medication first! I was in AF on a daily basis, for several hours at a time and both myself and hubby were getting so tired through disturbed nights. I'm now back on amiodarone, for a short time only, due to wicked side effects. It certainly stops the episodes, but I'll only be on it for a couple of months, then switch to yet another medication! I do need to lose weight and I'm diabetic, but he didn't say that made a difference to doing the procedures. As amiodarone is the best medication for preventing AF episodes, I'm not too hopeful of a different tablet coping. I thought I was in control of my long term outlook, I'm so disappointed that I'm not.
