I have posted similar before but am getting more concerned about ablation after reading all the post op reports from everyone and I could get called up anytime now.
I am on the waiting list for ablation ( after going into AF for 6 months which required a cardioversion and then regular paroxysmal AF one episode requiring flecanide drip to stop) and currently on flecanide rivaroxiban and omeprazole. I appear very well controlled with only occasional slight sob at rest and some speeding of heart rate ( only 80-90 instead of usual 60-70). I havent had AF for at least 4 months and go to gym regularly and lead an active life.
I am concerned that ablation will leave me worse than I feel right now! I am also aware that AF gets worse and the flecanide will stop working so well ( especially as I dont have many side effects - just slight sweating at night occasionally- unless its the dreaded menopause starting at 43 year old!!)
Wondered what everyone thought? Do I get it over and done with when I get called or do I wait until I get more symptoms before I agree to go in?
