Today I saw the specialist about my af, mixed feelings but some helpful information,
He has put me in for a ablation as a urgent case but warned me the waiting list was 7 months, but advised me to contact my gp as episodes progressed to get me bumped up the list also put me down for any short notice cancellation.
He also put me on blood thinners (apixiban) I think they called seemed rather surprised I wasn't already on them .
He also asked me if I snored which my wife was happy to answer, I do sometimes snore but she mentioned the fact that I sometimes stop breathing when asleep, he asked me if I suffered headaches and felt sleepy, I do suffer headaches and could fall asleep at a concert, he referred me th a sleep appnia specialist saying that could be contributory to the af,
He told me to lose weight and exercise, I stopped drinking before Christmas that pleased him.
So all I need is my heart scarring, my blood thinning, a better nights sleep , less to eat to be thinner, tea total, take up some form of exercise and I might feel better but never be cured .
That's af for ya.
