One year on

I have been so busy getting on with life in NSR that I have not had time to let you all know how I am a year after cryoablation (July 7th last to be precise). I have had a wonderful, normal, year no AF at all. It is difficult to remember just how bad it was in the dark days when the PAF was getting worse and worse. I am 70 years old now and walk several miles a day and eat sensibly, so am not overweight. I now drink alcohol sparingly and enjoy the occasional cup of coffee. I am off all heart related drugs except for Apixaban, which means that I am free of the tiredness and other symptoms induced by Flecainide and Bisoprolol. A big thank you to Prof. Schilling and his team.

Also, thanks to all on this forum, I don't think that I would have considered ablation without reading all of your experiences.

Regards to all,

Peter
