So as some of you know, when I first came here I was a nervous wreck, the thought that at 40 my life was over with a dodgy ticker, I wallowed in self pity and almost destroyed my marriage with my constant depression of my new found health issue.
After doing some research and some fantastic information here I've become more calm about this condition..... However having watched dr guptas latest video titled one snake two heads I've gone backwards,
In it he says a very respected dr carried out a study that if you have AF with no other condition, then this is known as lone AF... And the study showed that these people were at no greater risk of stroke than the normal population....
However it showed people that suffer AF as a symptom of some other problem they're risk is significantly higher for stroke than the normal population... And that ablation is less successful
So I have found that I have sleep apnea, which puts me into the higher stroke/mortality group, this info has really knocked me back to almost where I was after first being diagnosed..... It's a real blow to me
