Hi everyone, I have just joined this group and in am in need of advice.
I was diagnosed with Paroxysmal AF three years ago (I am now 72). I have been taking 5mg Apixaban and 100mg Flecainide twice daily, 1.25mg Bisoprolol and 40mg Valsartan once a day. Last April I had a stroke, after which they put me on 40mg Atorvastatin. Prior to the stroke I was happy to be treated with this medication as I generaly believe operations are a last resort and I had learned to live with the AF. But since the stroke I am not so sure. I tend to feel that the medication did not stop me having a stroke so perhaps I should have the Ablation as I may not be so lucky next time. I have seen two consultants one recommends I have an Ablation and one doesn't. I would love to hear of others experience and advice.
