I was told I had AF back on 5th December 2016. It's persistent AF and I'm taking one 7.5ml bisoprolol and two 5ml apixaban daily. I'm a 55 year old man.
I have stopped smoking and drinking alcohol and coffee since diagnosis, as well as trying to eat more healthily and to lose about 5-7kg.
I got very lucky because my cardiologist (new to the department at my hospital) told me that she wanted me to have a cardioversion at the end of January. I managed to hold them to this and had a cardioversion yesterday offered at short notice when there was a cancellation. It worked, which is great but I do feel less well now than I did before the procedure (more tired and breathless than previously). Does anyone have any advice?
Assuming that I stay in normal rhythm (now about 65-75 when resting), do I stay on the beta blockers till my next cardiology appointment on 22nd March? I assume so as nobody has told me anything different, but it seems counter-intuitive given that I am in NSR post- cardioversion...
