Woohoo, I saw the consultant yesterday for my three month post ablation check, and after doing an array of tests and some close  questioning, he has discharged me. Apart from the occasional run of etopics and missed beats which are perfectly normal for me, everything is good. Because of my great age and being female (Cheeky bugger)!!! I am to continue with Rivoroxaban.   Armed with the arrhythmia nurses phone number and the instruction to call her should anything change in the future I left his office on cloud nine, and best of all I can drive again!!! 

For those of you wondering if putting yourself through it is worth it, it most definitely is, my quality of life has improved beyond belief. Given the same circumstances I would do it again, here's to the 2nd time being the cure!!
