I am a 74 yr old female with above problems. I am taking Warfarin, Bisoprolol, Digoxin, Candesartan, Atorvastatin & Furosemide. My first cardioversion lasted for 20 months but my second only a few hours. I had to wait so long for an outpatient follow up appointment I paid for a private consultation with the cardiologist who recommended I see an electrophysiologist which I paid for too. He explained my options & we agreed for me to have a biventricular pacemaker fitted & 4 weeks later to have an AV node ablation. I would then be pacer dependent. He & my GP agreed I could go on the EP'S NHS waiting list for the procedures which I am told should be done in 3 to 4 months. Having read many posts on this site I have seen very few people having a pacer & ablation. Please could anyone who has, let me know their experiences. Thank you.
