I have A/F for about 10 years and it seems to be getting more regular lately and have always been careful what I do or drink etc. When early in April 2016 I had a heart attack
I was whisked to Wythenshaw hospital for the immediate fitting of a stent. But another one was required. It was unsuccessful and am now awaiting By pass surgery in late June at the same hospital. I feel pretty weak and breathless these days I am hoping everything will be reversed after the surgery. I asked the cardiac surgeon what had caused it as I have never smoked (it killed my Dad) and alcohol has been of the menu for the last 10 years I have also followed a healthy diet for the past 50 years.He said it must be wear and tare as i am now 81.It makes one wonder what do you have to do to prevent things like this happening?
