I have suffered from A/F for over 14 years which has involved several stays in hospital, three CV,s, two angiograms etc. I am due to have a pacemaker fitted on 24th November followed by a AV node ablation around six weeks later. I have been told that these proceedures will not get rid of A/F. My problem is that if the ablation cuts off all signals to my heart then there is nothing to trigger an attack of A/F. Is this a correct interpretation or am I missing something.
