8 weeks - so far, so good!

Cryoablation 8 weeks ago and apart from one 12 hour period of rapid and sometimes, irregular heat beat, things are good. During that wobbly period, my Kardia recorded possible AF a couple times and unclassified at others. I have been aware of occassional ectopics and/or palputations, but I've tried to ignore them and I think they are less frequent. I'm just about to finish the omeprazole, but will carry on with my other meds (Diltiazem, Flecainide and Apixaban) until my review at the end of the year. Hoping to be able to reduce this medication then, but I will have to wait and see!!

My wife and I are celebrating a big birthday this year, and we will soon be going to the States for a month which has been booked for more than a year now, and there have been times when we didn't think we would make it. Naturally, we are grateful for all the help we have had from the Surrey Support Group, the folks at St George's and last, but not least......this Forum.

I know this is by no means over, but I hope it will help others, best wishes, John

  • Awesome! I personally had not had a single episode of ANYTHING anytime after my ablation, nearly 3 months ago. It is like I never had AF or A-flutter in my entire life.
