Hi

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!!!!!!

Thank you for such an uplifting post. You really did go through the mill - I am quite sure that I could not have coped with all those ablation problems. You deserve a medal!

Very best wishes for your continued good health.

That's great. That's how I was after my first ablation, complete success, no drugs except anti-coags and no more going to hospital :-) .
