After waiting 10 months I was given the date of 15th September for my ablation, unfortunately on the 14th September I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Hence the ablation was cancelled.
Two weeks following this cancellation and prior to my breast surgery I attended the AF patients day, which was brilliant, The talk by Prof Shillings on ablation just confirmed all I had read. It has made me seriously consider how I proceed with the ablation. The cardiologist I am under for the ablation only does about 20 ablations a year now, he has in the past done many more, he told me that his audits are comparable to others in the field. I think that the breast cancer has made me reassess and at the moment I am not sure if I should ask to be referred to another Doctor who performs more ablations.
What do you think?
Thank you. x
