Saw EP at Wythenshaw Hospital last week and he has changed his opinion from last time I saw him. I have had two AF attacks in one year but as I have a slow heartbeat when not in AF, around 50 bpm, I only use bisoprolol as PIP and Apixaban. He discussed giving me a pacemaker last time then he could give me drugs for the AF and the pacemaker would keep my heart at a steady pace. This time he said to leave it to see how my AF behaves in the next six months, I have to see him again in May 2016. He never discussed ablasion but I am thankful no pacemaker at the minute as I thought last time it was decided too quickly when I had only seen him once. We will see what the next six months brings, in the meantime Happy Christmas to everyone on the forum and thanks for your help during the year.
