i haven't been on the forum in a few months as I have been back to full time work. Unfortunately I am no better at all after my ablation last Oct, with daily AF episodes lasting 5-6 hours at a time. I recently almost collapsed in work and was taken to hospital. It was detected that the anti-arrythmic drug I was on (Disopyramide) was at toxic levels in my body, causing a prolonged QTc and the EP said I could have had a cardiac arrest. So I am now off all anti arrythmics as they all carry that risk for me as I need very high doses for any kind of symptom relief. I feel now worse off them though which is good. My EP has predicted i will go into permanent AF and he said people find this easier yommto tolerate than PAF. I find this difficult to believe as I absolutely hate the feeling and discomfort of AF. Has anyone any views or advice on this? I cannot have another ablation as I have multiple arrythmias and he said it is like finding a needle in a haystack. i am thankful for otherwise wonderful health but he said my heart is very chaotic and an abaltion is very difficult to carry out on me having done an EP study and previous ablation. .
