6 week check up

So I'm currently waiting for my transport back to sunny Cardiff after seeing Sabine Ernst for my 6 week check up.

All was very positive she showed me a video of my procedure, and explained what she had done, which was a fascinating thing to see.

My holster monitor picked up I had 27 extra beats over 48hours, however she said they were ventricular not atrial when I asked if I should be concerned her reply was, not at all she has more than that and she deems herself as normal.

My drug regime is discontinued apart from the apixaban which I'm to take for a further 6 weeks and if I'm still sinus rhythm then I can also stop that

So all in all good news and a real privilege in meeting this highly skilled lady
