Saw a new EP yesterday. I have been on Cartia XT since October when I was diagnosed with Paroxysmal AFIB.
I went almost 6 months before I had my second episode on April 12th. I have had an episode every 1-2 weeks since. Multaq was prescribed which made me I'll and I had no energy.
I had a follow up appt yesterday and my EP suggested RF ablation. I agreed and I was called back this morning. An opening was available for Monday so I took it. I am so ready for this.
My EP is doing sedation only not general anesthesia. He states I will be able to come home the same day.
Anybody had ablation with sedation only? He states I will be slightly aware of my surroundings or could sleep through most of it.
