I should be having a colonoscopy but am concerned that the procedure or the prep might trigger a fib. I had a successful cryoablation about 18 months ago and have not had any episodes of A fib since that I am aware of. I do however get ectopic beats which my cardiologist says is OK.My a fib began about three years ago after a mitral valve repair.
I am still on coumadin and probably always will be as the cardiologist and EP feel that A fib may recur. I am also concerned about stopping the coumadin four days before the colonoscopy.
I would appreciate hearing about any experience others have had with a similar situation. This forum is really very informative.
