Even though I had seen my E.P. privately and my state of the art monitor confirmed that A.F. had returned and that I needed a redo ablation, I decided to keep my routine N.H.S. appointment as the flecanide appeared to have stopped working.
My E.P. did an e.c.g. and said I was in a slow (ish) tachycardia that keeps going into A.F.
He once again said I needed the ablation sooner rather than later,I assume before it becomes 24/7. I heard him dictate this onto his recorder. He told me to keep in touch with the arrhythmia nurse which I do anyway.
Unfortunately, the waiting list is long (6 months. I am 2 months into that ) and the co ordinator seems to be the decision maker on this. I am guessing there are more needy cases than mine.
I don't think there is anything more I can do but it's so frustrating and worrying that things are escalating.
On the plus side I think the bisoprolol is keeping the H.R. down and therefore much more manageable.
I'm so glad to be able to come on here for a grumble. X
