Does not seem possible, but it's almost a year since my Cryoablation and I thought it might help others if I give a brief account of progress. The post is a couple of days early because I'm psyching myself up to have a wisdom tooth extracted on the day of the anniversary!!!
Progress has been good, I did have a couple of short AF episodes within 2 weeks of the procedure and again, just after the 6 month review, but since then (believe me, I got EVERYTHING crossed!!) all has been well. In the early months, there were a number of ectopics and some short runs of rapid, but regular heartbeats, but these have progressively reduced, but it's very true that they are stress related.
I came off my daily dose of Flecainide after the 6 month review which may have contributed to the two short episodes, and provided my blood pressure is OK, I'm hoping to dump the Diltiazem after my review in August, but will stay on Apixaban. Next month, I will have a 5 day monitor fitted prior to the review, but we are going away for a few weeks next week, so I'm hoping to remain cool, calm and collected before being monitored so don't wind me up Beancounter!!!
When I reflect on my situation from diagnosis, I truly count my blessings and although I am well aware things can change at anytime, I just wish that everyone with AF could be as fortunate.
All I've got to do now, is pluck up the courage to get rid of this bl**dy wisdom tooth
