I have had AF for 15/16 years. Managed really well on Flecanaid for about 12 years before it stopped working.

Went for my first ablation 3 years ago which was abandoned because of Tamponade, 2nd ablation 8 months later was abandoned because of a blood clot in my heart, third one was not really successful, fourth one last August appears to be really successful apart from a few wobbles in the first couple of weeks everything is fine.

I am off all medication except for Dabigatran.

I saw local cardiologist yesterday and have been 'discharged' unless there are any problems in the future and London have said the same. So for the first time in 15 years I have no forward appointments.

It feels great!!!!!!

Good luck to everyone!!!!!!
