I finally came home from hospital on Friday after my hysterectomy - apparently I'm the longest hospital stay my consultant has ever had, but he wasn't going to let me out until he was completely happy (which I was totally fine with!)
Due to the fact that I'm not on anti-coags for my AF (CHADSVASC score of 1), he was concerned that over the next 6 weeks of relative inactivity I would be at greater risk of clotting / stroke so has kindly sent me home with 6 weeks' worth of blood thinning injections to self-administer. I know some people on the forum have asked about having operations with AF so thought it worth mentioning this.
My AF (or tachycardia? Even pulse at 139 bpm) kicked in twice while I was in - first time a few hours after the operation which lasted about 15 hours, then a couple of days later but only for an hour. All fine since then - I think my body has worked out which way is up and how to get back into control!
All looking good!
