success at last

I was seen by my EP yesterday and he has booked me for an ablation on the 27/9/16 before that in July (hopefully) I have a cardioversion booked and the EP says that the type of ablation will depend on the outcome of the cardioversion. I am at the moment exhilarated and terrified, even when he highlighted the down side with the statistics for death (1/1000)and stroke (1/200) although these are something to seriously consider my quality of life is such that I will take those risks.

Mine was brilliant and worked very well. Good to have such an early date.

Go for it Cali 111. Grasp the opportunity so that you will never live with regret. I also got to the stage that life wasn't much fun when AF could, and did, strike without warning.

Help yourself by staying calm and going with the flow. I promise you that there are worse things than ablation. If you want to message me privately then please do.

Hi Cali,

I know I was concerned when I saw those stats but don't forget that those unfortunate folk more than likely had other medical problems that made having the ablation more risky in the first place. I have just had an ablation ( 13/6/16) and was very apprehensive but it all went well and fingers crossed the AF is sorted and if not I would be much less anxious on a second one. Of course it is natural to feel anxious but the worse thing that can happen is that it doesn't work but chances are it will!
