Hi 👋🏼, I am new here and new to this AFib . I had my first run of it back in November and it lasted 7 hours in and out of it . I have suffered a lot over the years with runs of ectopic heart beats 💗 and SVE in sinus rythem! But in November the run sent me into AFib . I am now on blood thinners and getting ready for an ablation in around 3 months time . I have also just been told I have a mild regurgitation and a dialated left atrium 😕 My cardiologist said not to worry but I am now . Ime sorry I googled it and am seeing stuff that has terrified me . Can the left atrium go back to normal size ? This is all new to me as all my scans had allways came back normal ' they said I was an anxious person which is no surprise with all these irregular heart beats I've had to put up with over the years . Ime understanding the ablation procedure is going to be done using the toparel mapping system and I am having it done at Leicester heart hospital. Has anyone had it done with this procedure at Leicester? Or any other hospital for that matter? Ime so nervous about this and terrified about my left atrium being dialated. Sorry for the long post , but I don't no we're to turn to talk to anyone else ❤️ thanks x
