Here I go again

Here I go again

Although not a newbie, this is my 1st post.

following cardioversions and ablations, I sincerely thought I was cured, until a year after my 3rd ablation, AF came back to me.

I contacted my GP, who gave me an ECG, heart-rate 130, she then contacted local Cardiac Unit requesting portable ECG monitoring, who advised me to take no medication (flecanaide) and admit myself to A&E if it recurred or got worse ???????

2 weeks later, after hearing no response from anyone I made a GP appointment and raised my concerns that I still had AF with heart-rate varying 50 - 130, leaving me exhausted most of the time. This GP has raised an urgent request to the Cardiac Unit which he says will be answered within 2 weeks - watch this space ( my experience of the Ablation Op at Royal Brompton is normally a waiting list of 18 weeks minimum, last one was 36 weeks)

  • Hi. Sorry to hear this news.

    I would either go to A & E, which should have been first thing if your AF was 130, or failing that, contact the secretary of your Electrophysiologist who did you ablation, and work from there.


  • agree with Pip Pip You shouldn't be left in limbo like this Hope you feel better soon.
