Good morning everyone. Just posting this for information to hopefully add to the 'knowledge' base. Saw my excellent EP for first time since my ablation on 16 July. Not unexpectedly he was not able to confirm success at this point given that I'd had 4 episodes of AF during the blanking period. which is a lot compared to my previous frequency. Hovever no episodes in last 5 weeks which included a period abroad so getting about normally otherwise. The plan is to continue as normal including meds Metoprolol and Apixaban, with a further review in 3 months time and before I'm due to fly to Australia. Interestingly he said that if a further ablation was necessary it would be done differently and under a general anaesthetic - but not for discussion now. He also told me I went into AF during the ablation and I was cardio verted at the end - not uncommon apparently.
I intend to remain positive and carry on life as normal - if I have any further prolonged bouts of AF will try and get an ECG and faxed to him. - so will try and stet something up with local surgery.
All the best to you all - am off to Venice for a few days next week - AF or not!
