I had Ablation done at UHNM in Stoke in December last year. The Ablation has bought my heart rate down from a high of 170bpm to 60-70 most of the time. It did start to rise again at times to around 90 Bpm so had word with my GP and he agreed to let me try small dose of Atenolol 25mg once per day which has now reduced it to consistent 60-75 Bpm. Which I find is no problem. The only other medication I am on is 3mg Warfarin once per day with a INR blood test once a month which is no big problem. So my one Ablation seems to have worked at the moment. The specialist at Stoke a Doctor Beynon was very good.
