I posted recently that I was back in persistent AF 4 months after having a cardioversion. I received a copy of the GPs letter after my consultation from my consultant today saying he wants me to have another cardioverson and start Dronedarone. I will also need to have renal & liver function tests weekly for the first 3 weeks of taking Dronedarone. Also, the intention is to have pulmonary vein isolation.
Firstly, has anyone any experience of Dronedarone? I was on Flecainide before but experienced horrible side effects.
Secondly, the words 'pulmonary vein isolation' treatment is quite scary and I'm wondering if it is the right course of action.
One more thing, it's OK to travel by air when in AF? I'm due to be away on a business trip next week
