Well, I've just come home from a week in hospital. I went on Monday last for an echocardiogram and EP kept me in when he looked at the results then & there. I was in the throes of a prolonged & severe bout of AF, 72 hours unceasing, and he was very concerned about it. Upshot is, I'm going to have a pacemaker fitted next month. They managed to get my heartrate back to normal with Amiodarone & Digoxin, plus Ramipril....I'm on 17 tablets a day now! He says if the pacemaker doesn't work 100% then I'll be sent for an ablation, too. I'm so hoping that won't be necessary, because it means either a 50 mile trip to Bristol or to London.
