I'm in West Wales UK and am waiting for my first Ablation. It will be done in Cardiff. I am waiting for my third cardioversion at Carmarthen and both previous have been successful for 12 and 6 months respectively. I am 55 and in constant Arrhythmia. I am taking Amiodarone , Warfarin and Bisoprolol.
It seems to me that Ablation is the obvious next step re my heart (I have no other heart problems) as quality of life could improve immensely. I was wondering if anyone on here is under the Heath in Cardiff and if so what the experience was like. I am under Dr Fong Leong and I will say that he was singulary the clearest communicator I have ever come across in the NHS.
I have had many operations over the years for other health issues but am more than slightly perturbed that the procedure is done under local rather than general because of money! Obviously Arrhythmia alone is not life threatening so resources are used elsewhere.
