I have been posting and relplying a lot these last few days mainly because I'm having a Cryoablation on Octobef 19. I finished pre op testing yesterday so I guess this means I'm set to go or run away! Your posts and replies are helping me so much , I can't thank you enough. Helping me make my decision I have read some information about atrial fibulation and dementia. As many of us know, many of the medications we take causes us to experience brain fog. Turns out that this brain fog isn't just from medication but from AFib iirself. AFib left untreated can cause Alzheimer's disease. I wasn't aware of this but it does make sense.
I found an article by Dr John Day . He was part of a study which concluded that ablation on AFib sufferers who were successfully cured greatly reduced there chance of developing dementia. He also stated that lifestyle changes were important after ablation.
Knowing this information has convinced me that the path of ablation and continuing healthy lifestyle is the answer for me, hope you all find this informative , Gracey
