Hi this is my first post, I’ve been reading here for a while and appreciate all the good sense and support given. I had first episode of PAF immediately after surgery (mastectomy) six months ago. Since then I’ve had episodes about once every 7 -14 days. They are getting longer, now 14 hours instead of 2-3 hours. I’m on 3.75 Bisoprolol and now on Apixaban (thanks to what I’ve learned on here – I really had to push for it at age 64). Every single episode has woken me up, it always occurs at night (or after anaesthetic) and converts to normal rhythm after a few hours. I’m very interested in the autonomic nervous system input into this. As I’ve never had a daytime event could it be that the parasympathetic system is involved? Any opinions or info gratefully received, Thanks, Jane
