Hi everyone. I have previously shared an ECG when I was in AF. Now I am sharing an ECG of me in NSR after being on Flecainide for a month. This was taken today and I saw my EP for the first time who told me that I WILL require an ablation, it is just a matter of when. A decision I will have to make at some point. If you look at the bottom trace title 'Rhythm' you will see that some of the wave complexes are close together (Atrial ectopic beats). My EP explained that this is my heart trying to break through into AF but it is being stopped from doing so, presumably by the Flecainide (for now at least). How long will it be before it breaks through? No one knows...As I have only been on Flec for a month or so, I have decided to bear with it and 'see how things go' for now. My EP explained that from the ECG he can tell that there is a strong likelihood my additional electrical impulses are coming from the pulmonary veins so the success of ablation would be 80%. My MRI was clear though so that is great news. I hope that this is of some interest/help to someone... thank you for listening!
