I have been on this forum for only a couple of months. During this time I have read almost all posts and replies in and effort to learn as much as I can about PAF.
I had appointment with my EP yesterday and went armed with lots of information thanks to all of you. He was very impressed i may say!
I have been on Flecanaide for a number of years and aspirin. I mentioned to him (thank you, Bob) that aspirin has been shown to have noaffect on A fib. He did agree! Asked him why it was prescribed to me and he answered, for your arteries. Ok I get that but I have excellent cholesterol. Oh well, that's another conversation.
Result of appointment after very long discussion was, I am starting on Pradaxa( again thank you Bob) and have scheduled an ablation for September.
He also agreed that as long as I'm on Pradaxa I can start to take Flecanaide as PIP.
I today have such a grateful heart for having all of you on this forum . I feel for the first time in years that I am in charge of me. We afibbers are in this together and together we will make each of us stronger. As always any opinions as to my decisions are appreciated. Good health to all, Gracey
