On Sunday, after a long but relaxing drive to the silver city to see my Mum for her 95th birthday tomorrow, I awoke yesterday morning to rapid heart thumping, and am still in AFib this morning (30 hours now). I only have bisoprolol as a PIP and although it lowered my heart rate I am still in AFib. As well as disappointment (to put it mildly) as I haven't had an episode since my diagnosis last December, I have an additional problem in that I am due to have a colonoscopy next Monday, and have to stop warfarin tomorrow in preparation.
When I saw the specialist re blood in stools (bright red), after the examination he said all the signs were that I was fine, and the colonoscopy was just to make sure. So at the moment I am more worried about stopping the warfarin than the procedure. And just to further complicate things, my daughter is booked for a C-section Tuesday and I need to be up to speed to help.
I really don't know what to do - I am so scared of stopping warfarin. Really appreciate any advice.
