Saw my EP yesterday and it's still too early he reckons for an ablation. So he's increased my flecainide dose to 100mg three times a day with a 50mg -100mg PIP for any breakthrough PAF up my sleeve Also to start on bisoprolol 1.25mg to see how that goes..take some pressure off my heart rate although it's abouts 70 at rest anyway but I guess it'd kick in if I go into AF . I'm happy enough to try this and he gave me a routine appointment to check up on me ....the next available one being October 2016!!!!!
One interesting fact I picked up : I couldn't understand how some people don't know they are in AF and he said its because I get a really hefty ventricular response to the chaotic atrial Arrythmia. Some people's atria are just flapping about and the hearts rate doesn't react much but obviously mine does! Flapping obviously a highly technical cardiologist term 😉
So wish me luck with my new regime. Bit nervous but hopeful. Better than recently anyway .
