I had an ablation in 2015 which improved but didn't cure my paroxymal lone AF - I still had about 3 episodes a week (rather than 3 a day). I planned to have another ablation but was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer (NET). Luckily I was able to have surgery which entailed removal of 1/2 my pancreas, all my spleen and gall bladder and a piece of liver. That was November 2016. Following surgery I went into AF and was put on a magnesium drip for 4 hrs. Don't really remember what my heart was up to in the next week or so as I was busy concentrating on recovering from surgery.
About a month later I realised I hadn't had a episode of AF for a while and started monitoring again with my Kardia.
I have had no episodes that I have noticed and none has been picked up by my Kardia (I test about twice a day). Previously my AF was really obvious with a heart rate of 150 - 180 bpm. I have had 3 months + clear of AF (Yippee!), whereas before I couldn't go a week without an attack.
I'm wondering if anyone has any idea why my AF has stopped and also whether anyone has stopped their anticoagulants when AF is no longer evident.
Sorry for the long post. Look forward to any comments.
