Hi. I do not know if this post is acceptable or not. But I am full of anxieties tonight.
I am Marney,s husband . She has been doing the posts. She has had ablation for afib today, and is still in hospitol and won,t be out till tommorrow as she is still heavily sedated.
The doctor ( who is great and doing this for 20 years) says that he is not very optimistic this time. He says it probably won,t change too much and suggest that Marney will need AVJ. That Is when they block so that the pacemaker ( which Marney has) does all the work not just the low HR, but also the High HR. I know Marney won,t like this, but if the high HR continues it will be hard on her heart and continued poor quality of life.
The doc says, up until a few years ago, that was THE way it was done, before pulmonary vein ablation. And they still do many many this way.
I would welcome your comments before I go back to pick Marney up tommorrow morning.
