Diagnosed with AF in AandE about 15 months ago, had my last episode in Oct 15 which lasted approx 14 hrs, didn't go to hospital but took bisoprolol as PiP. I can't take bisoprolol daily as I have a low heart beat, around 48-50, I am on Apixaban. I saw my EP in Wythenshaw hospital last November and we spoke about a pacemaker if I got to the position of needing to take bisoprolol daily as it would lower my heart too much then I would need a pacemaker. I think at the present time I am happy with the PiP until and if the AF progresses. I notice a lot of people on here talk about their EPs and phoning to speak to his Secretary but I have a feeling he will discharge me next week, can I ask to stay on his 'books' to see him in six months again or will I have to go through the 'system' again if needed which takes ages? This week I have been having a strange heartbeat, it goes normal for about 5 beats then a quick one, then normal again and then repeats the quick one, do you think this is leading to an AF episode again. Thanks, kind regards.
