This is my first post after looking in for a couple of weeks or so.
So yesterday it was officially confirmed to me that I have AF and a plan for initial treatment was discussed. The specialist thinks that a cardio diversion is worth attempting although I have read that this procedure is most successful in the very early stages of AF and I have probably passed that 'early' stage a while back. I'm to come off of aspirin and go on to one of the newer anti coagulants for four to six weeks before the procedure.
Anybody had success with a cardio diversion and is there anything to look out for when taking the new blood thinners? I know that if you have a blow to the head you're supposed to get checked out in case of an internal bleed.
I must admit that I was hoping my symptoms were something to do with taking bisprolol for eleven years and a drug change would stop me feeling tired all of the time, but apparently not.
Anyway, I look forward to hearing of others experiences with the procedure described above.
