Well, Ive just been to see the cardiologist today and discussed my current wobbles.
From the ECG he said that i am currently in Flutter although last time i was cardioverted a few months ago i was in Fibrillation.
Ive never really understood the difference, but he got his biro and the back of a piece of paper out and drew what was going on in the two scenarios.
Since returning home i had a quick nose on this forum and straight away it looks like may have got my left & right mixed up. On the docs drawing he referred to flutter being in the left atrium (as i was looking at it), but this differs from comments I've seen here on the forum. I just hope he gets it right on the day of the procedure.
What i thought afterwards was why can't the consultant's have printed copies of Arrhythmia that they can scribble on and give us to take home. Maybe other consultants do?
Anyway the upshot is i was offered both procedures in one hit to address flutter & fibrillation, but after considering i have elected to just have the flutter procedure initially and then see how things go with any further fibrillation. Fingers crossed again
Ive added my own brief version of the sketch that the consultant drew. A few details are missing but as i may have suggested, once you exit the consultants room all those minor details and success rates etc "flutter" away from your memory
