Just been to see my E.P today and due to Amiodarone affecting my liver and thyroid he's taken me off it with immediate effect, he's also taken me off warfarin as i'm anemic. In his words I have to go into AF then try and manage it with Digoxin, he said it won't be easy and I may have to spend time in hospital. The whole idea scares the hell out of me, he says i'm too young for a pacemaker (49) and too overweight for ablation, he also says I have narrowing of one of the valves exiting the heart. I've been on Flecainide in the past and that worked for a while but was taken off it. I'm on Verapamill 240mg and Ramiprill.
Has anyone experienced this ? what shall I expect. Any advise would be very welcome.
