I just thought I would send you an update following my ablation which I had at the beginning of May. Because of the complications after the ablation I have been on amiodarone for nearly four months. I have been really lucky and apart from the horrid dreams I haven't really had any side effects from it and it put me back into NSR at the beginning of June. Not going in the sun has been rather difficult though. Following the OK from the consultant I should be able to stop taking it now which will be great. However I have to admit to feeling a bit nervous about the AF returning once the medication wears off. But perhaps I am just being pessimistic.
I was told that if the AF does come back then I will have to go in for another procedure but this time they will be doing 3D mapping of the heart and radio frequency.
But I am back to the positive thinking and all will be well.
This AF is tough on us but I know that staying positive through all the difficult times pays dividends.
