Firstly, as ever, a huge thanks you to all that answered me.
I have finally got my bum out of bed today and trying my best to see the positives and really there are a lot of them. I have a great medical team wanting to help me and the support on here and friends and family who understand – plus summer is on its way so I can get into the garden soon and obsess with my plants!
So I have 2 months apx until my ablation – I have been very stupid and started smoking again and eating rubbish – So my plan is tomorrow May 1st to take the bull by the horns and start again helping myself and my surgeons. I know if I carry on smoking I will be too scared to have my ablation and also my stomach op (carrying a 4st oedema really is getting me down)
These arrhythmias are not the end of the world and even if they can’t be ‘cured’ I am sure the ablation will help. I am 99.9% convinced they wont kill me now (it’s only taken 6 months for this!!) I am on rivaroxaban so I am protected against a stroke and hopefully the can remove Boris (my pet name for my oedema!! – My doctors think this may also be contributing to my arrhythmias)
So a huge thank you to all you lovely people again – Apologies for my moaning meltdown the other night – It’s just so nice to know you all can identify with it and understand! I guess it’s up to me now to make these changes. – Pollyanna is back!!
