Check up post ablation

Well just been to see EP and Ive been told my SVT is now history ( great news) and theres a 75% chance AF has gone to ( not so convinced of this yet...but we will see ). He wants me to come off all medication . Thats Flecainide and Warfarin saying my risk of stroke is minimal so I dont need it. So folks watch this space!!!

How good is that! Here's hoping the medication can be successfully dropped.

Thats really good news the AF has really settled down and no flecainide. I did think we had to stay on anti coags for life whatever the outcome after ablation.

Well so did I but when I questioned EP he said not for me. Dont know if itll be safe but what do you do. I suppose if I have another AF attack I go straight back onto everything again. Fingers crossed Im safe

I dont even know if its safe to just stop Warfarin. Thats what Ive done because thats what I was told!!!

You can only do as you are told. We are all different but you can ask questions if needed. I can't wait till my drugs are reduced. One was stopped but im taking 2others for a short time.

Hi Bridget

Firstly, well done you appear to have had a successful ablation.

I too was told by my EP (at the 12 month review) that I didn't need to continue the anticoagulant as it was not necessary in my case. There appear to be quite a few people around here who have a different view but I reasoned the EP was the one who knew my particular case and history.

Would need to start anticoagualtion within 48 hours if (hopefully not) I have another episode.

All the best
