My first cardioversion was successful!! On first try!
So, from the doom and gloom implied by the one visit cardiologist, I was successfully converted today by a top electrophysiologist Dr. M. Bennett. The staff and nurses, the equipment, the doctors were all positive, professional experiences. My faith in the western Canada AF clinic has been greatly restored.
Now it is a matter of how long I can remain in NSR. Any advice other than standard?
