Hi there, posted last week as had AF episode just before important job interview. Well I got the job, have given one months notice and start on 19th October. Very very happy. I was made redundant from a job I love in a College and had done for 20 years last August. My new job is a similar role at the same college.
Yesterday the nurse manager from Guys/St Thomas phoned me, said they had lost the pre-procedure assessment I had completed and that I had sent to them in July and could we do it on the phone!! 1 hour later (at work) had completed it and I explained that I really need the procedure done urgently, my AF episodes are now every other day, last week had 4 in 24 hour period, plus getting lots of runs of ectopics in between!!
Anyway she put me on to Admission team and they offered me the earliest date which was yes - 12th October!! I explained about my new job. said that starting a new job one week after procedure is cutting it too fine, she said you only need one week recovery - mmm?! from what I have read on this site, it can often take longer. I really don't want to start new job and then go off sick immediately! So I made decision to have a date later allowing for me to settle into job and went for 24th November. Hope I have made the right decision.
All I have to do now is 'hang on in here' with the increased AF episodes, hope they don't get worse. I'm going to speak to GP ask if she can increase my Propafanone dose from 150mg 3 times a day, which I understand is the low dose. Or go back onto Flecainide at higher dose short term might work.
What do you all think?
