I posted a few days ago wondering if I could stop Apixaban. Thanks to all who replied. Most said no or at least urged caution. To continue with the story:-
Saw the EP yesterday. Showed him my Kardia report - zero AF Jan and Feb compared with quite a few episodes in Oct and Nov. (no records for Nov and Dec due to surgery). Also discussed the fact that I always know when I am in Af. His advice was to stop medication but if I started in AF again just start medication. He said that the heart can sometimes mend itself and its possible that that's what mine did.
He also mentioned that this approach is not for everyone - it would not be suited of course to those who are not sure whether they are in AF or not. BTW my CHADSVASC score is just 2 (female and 66) so not a very high risk.
Thanks to everyone who responded to my post and sent good wishes. I hope you find my EP's answer interesting and encouraging. Its not a widely held view I know and the GP I saw this morning didn't really approve.
