I am trying to understand af and when my father was diagnosed recently with af his doctor told him that af could be controlled with medication. I thought the doctor meant that the symptoms could be controlled. Am I wrong in thinking that as af progresses it cannot be controlled with medication? My father has permanent af. We had an appointment with a cardiologist today and my father explained that he has pulpaitations most nights when goes to bed and we were giving no real answers but deal with it . He has been told that Albation probably is not an option and would just have to stay with medication.
This is the only site that I get any comfort from. Thank you.
