Hi. I also am at almost a year after my ablation. Surgery was in July and the only real episodes have been scattered and lasting only a few seconds. I do feel a "quiver" at night occasionally, but if I take a deep breath it goes away. Pulse is always at 70-75.

So happy for u. Still on blood thinners? What is your age?

I have sleep apnea, a little overweight(50 lbs ). No b/p problems or other health issues. My age and risk factors are enough to be on apixaban.i am hoping to get off the betablocker(metoprolol) when I go back for my checkup.

Interesting you find a deep breath helps in stopping a potential AF episode. I also have done this for some time and now take 3 or 4 deep breaths periodically during the day.

What great news, well done. I am only two weeks into my recovery from an ablation and have had atrial tachycardia following it. So it feels like a long hard slog but so great to know from everyone here that we can combat this and live 'normal' lives.
