It's been a while since I last checked in on here, but I thought I would give you an update (positive news for anyone considering an ablation).
12 months ago yesterday I went into hospital for an ablation for persistent AF and flutter. It was only today, whilst I was out running, that I realised that my op was a year ago as I had completely forgot. In fact I haven't even thought about AF since my six month checkup - I feel great and when I now look back at the couple of years I had with AF it seems a bit surreal, almost like it happened to someone else!
I was worried about the procedure and at one point I even thought I would be better off just living with the AF.
If you're considering an ablation and are wondering if it really will make a difference to your quality of life then I hope this update gives you some encouragement.
All the best to you all.
