I haven't posted on here for a while, simply because I've been AF free now for 14 months since the ablation. I saw my consultant for the last time this morning and we discussed the whole anticoagulation issue again. This was my final chance to come off them and with a CHADsVasc of 1 (being female), I don't really need them at the moment. However, I will need them in 6 years when I'm 65 and then I may or may not have to battle with my GP to take rivaroxaban (which I'm on now and which my EP asked them to put me on). I know that research will have moved on, but the bottom line is that I really don't want to take warfarin again. So for this and for other reasons, I've opted to stay on the anticoags long term. I really hope that i've made the right decision.
