When my af first started I saw a cardiologist who discharged me and put the episode down to stress and/or alchohol. Several weeks later had another episode of af and saw my gp. Gp stated had no feedback from cardiologist so asked me to give them a bell for the notes. Three weeks later the cardiologist rang me on a sunday morning stated he had seen af on the first ecg and was now referring me to an ep. The appointment eventually got cancelled and they sent me to see a different cardiologist. Anyway looking at the notes with my gp and the initial ep referal made by cardiologist number 1 was for an av node ablation? Does this not sound like an over reaction since he firstly discharged me? Surely they would have considered other less dramatic ablation procedures?
