My EP was happy to inform me that 2 weeks of wearing monitor did not record anything bad. My recovery was tough for the first 2 months - shortness of breath and fatigue. Then one day everything changed as if I never had Afib nor ablation.
I was off Metoprolol and Flecainidine after 1 months and he suggests to stop Eliquis after another 3 months (6 months after ablation) despite the fact that I am 67. He says that as long as I don't have any AF episodes, my blood pressure is normal, cholesterol under control and no diabetes that I can safely stop it with intention to continue with all medications in case of AF episode until I see him again. The risk of stroke is so minute in his words that the risk of bleeding statistically becomes larger?!
I got my life back (so far) hoping that it stays this way.
