My daughter is 26 and has congenital heart disease, she was admitted to hospital 3 weeks ago and diagnosed with AF. During 26 years of hospital visits this had never been mentioned or picked up before, can it have started all of a sudden. She has been put on warfarin, digoxin and verapamil. I am worried about how to help her manage her condition. She is very laissez fairre about it, but I am not. She also has a 6 year old son to care for. How best can I support her in her journey with AF? She has a CPAP machine for her sleep apnoea which is supposed to help with her AF, does anyone have any experience of this? As you can probably tell I am more than a little stressed with coping with my feelings about her diagnosis.
