I had my first bout of AF two years ago and pla ed on both warfarin and metoprolol.
Recently had another setious episode that again required amiodarone infusion to correct.
Apparently I probably have other limited bouts but either dont recognise it and put it down to indigestion and palpitations or it doesnt last too long and I come back out of fast AF naturally.
Cardiologist now also prescribed Pill in Pocket with Fleconaide but has suggested that I really should have ablation.
I kniw the risks and would still have to take warfarin lifelong (as i have already had a stroke) and know that I will need it done sooner rather than later because its the nature of AF to happen more often.
My friend had it done three times! And nearly died on the last one with cardiac arrest requiring the use of paddles...... so thats like really put me off.
Has anyone had different experiences? More positive ones?
Thanks guys n gals 👍🏻🙋🏻
