I'm Phil in Maine, USA. 55, athletic. I've been reading this forum for a couple of months now with interest. I've enjoyed reading about others' experiences relating to Afib. I want to offer this account of my own situation.
After quickly returning to afib after 2 recent cardioversions, my dose of flecainide was doubled to 100mg twice a day. A third cardioversion was scheduled for today, but I returned to sinus (normal) rhythm yesterday and will not need that 3rd procedure.
While I know this afib seemingly has not rhyme or reason, I still want to make some sense of it or, at least, try. Besides the flecainide, I participated in 2 sessions of cardio tennis this week. Each session was 90 minutes and pushed me to a point that I hadn't pushed myself for quite some time. I have an idea that this type of cardio exercise played a role in my return to sinus rhythm. That's all. I wanted to share this experience in case it meant something to anyone else.
Here's to normal rhythm! And tennis! best, phil
