As many know on here I've had an awful af journey. Going from episodes last couple hours to permanent and very unwell with it in just under 3 year. Well in July after a 3 week spell in hospital finally had my ablation. All went well until 3 weeks later and it started again. In August after being back in hospital my ep decided to put me on deronadrone rather than do an ablate and pace (then I'd solely be reliant on pacemaker) and what a difference it's made.
I've gone from not being able to walk even to my loo without palpitations, breathlessness and feeling faint to actually being able to go Christmas shopping for couple hours. I'm still feeling the odd niggle every so often but just not jumping into an episode is heaven. Whether it's the deronadrone and everything changes once I come off it in January but hopefully it's a successful ablation and I'll feel like this for a while. I'm still taking all my meds as I've other heart issues and need to take them but I'm feeling more myself than I ever have.
Just wanted to let the newbies know there is hope on this af journey even if you think there's not. Take it from me. I've had some fab support on here and know if it starts up again where to come to vent or get support.
