I'm 42 and have PAF controlled by Flecainide at the moment. 2 x 50mg per day. One year and counting. I'm considering ablation myself at some point. My opinion is that overall, on balance, this forum is pro-ablation and anti poisonous drugs. However I have seen some recent posts that in my mind, seem to confirm that ablation is very much hit and miss, not guaranteed to make your life any better, perhaps a complete waste of time? and effort, and in some cases quite disabilitating? All I can see is months of taking nasty drugs beforehand. A nasty procedure. Nasty drugs after. A complete change of lifestyle while you recuperate and then BANG back to the drawing board. 2 or 3 ablations later people are still suffering. My question is therefore should this forum really be so biased towards ablation? Or should it be a little more realistic and balanced? Comments welcome...
