Not long now!!

I am due my first and fingers crossed my last Ablation at the Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital on the 24th May. Beginning to feel a little anxious, I had my pre-op appointment on Monday and all seemed ok. What was interesting well...sort of was that I do seem to be in persistent AF coupled with a A/Flutter although I am lucky that my HB rarely goes above 75/80 and no symptoms. It as made the decision to go ahead much easier. so now it is a case of hold your breath and jump in.

  • Hi Roy,

    It will be 2 yrs this August since I had my successful Pulmonary Vein Ablation for PAF at Liverpool.My EP was Dr.Gupta and Arrhythmia Nurse was Maureen.

    You wouldn't be human if you didn't feel apprehension but l am pretty sure you won't look back.


  • Hi Roy,

    You will be fine don't worry, enjoy the rest afterwards!

    Good luck and keep us posted.


  • Hi Roy. I am sure you will be fine, I'll be thinking of you. It's perfectly normal to feel apprehensive, I was absolutely terrified! But I am so glad I did it, it's three weeks today since I had mine at Liverpool and I'm doing fine! Just a little breathless at times but have been in perfect NSR since. I know it's early days and I don't want to jinx it, but, up to now, I am very happy! Very best wishes. Jean

  • Thanks Jean appreciate the reply. Roy

  • Thanks everyone for the messages.. of course part of the anxiety is the unknown. like iIsaid..deep breath and jump in on the 24th May. Thanks again Roy

  • Well you're jumping in the best place. Had my cryoablation there last October, terrific care, great support before, during and after, and am feeling A Okay. Good Luck 

  • Thanks Lorna...great to know other peoples successes. So glad your feeling A okay. Roy

  • All the very best - perfectly natural to be anxious (as was I) but you are in good hands. I had my second this week and am now enjoying the rest at home. 

  • Thanks John I hope all continues to get better for you. Cheers Roy

  • I had mine there last December and the procedure wasn't as bad as I thought. I now tend to forget all about the AFib that I used to have. Message me if you have any questions, but I'm sure you will have read all the posts from people who have been through it already.

    Good luck, Lynn
