Hi Barry I hope you are continuing to enjoy "your new condition". since your AV node ablation. I have just received a call from the local hospital offering me Weds 7th December for AV procedure. I too have endured A/F for 6years and 3 Ablations countless Cardioversions too many "pills to point a stick at" now face a procedure that I know little about. That hope fully is where you come in. On some posts there is concern expressed about "last resorts". How did you feel about that aspect? Did you feel better immediately as I assumed the benefits come when your PM is set 3mths after insertion. So you know unlike you breathlessness was not my biggest challenge. I suffered far greater with very very low energy levels,like the battery that runs out early rather than the one that keeps going longer and my hope is to feel as you do re-energised. Any advice you could offer would be much appreciated.
