I wasn't in there long. The summary of my consultation as follows:
He recommends ablation, given that I have a low resting HR and wish to return to sport. I am being referred to an EP to take this further. (I don't relish heart surgery at age 38, but, I feel content that they are going straight for the "solution" rather than wasting time trying alternatives.
Potassium / Magnesium supplementation is not advised. He didn't go into details, but said that a deficiency is not the cause in my case.
I can participate in exercise as long as I am in NSR. (Whilst I suspect that exercise is my trigger, I have yet to fully confirm this. I plan to experiment further, within sensible limits).
I am to stay on Anticoagulation even though I have only been in AF for 24 hours out of the last month. I was surprised at this decision but I will go with it for now.
He was most impressed with my Heal Force ECG scans, and made a note of the model. I said that it had been of great use and reassurance to me to be able to see my heart behaviour at any time of the day. I said that everyone with a heart condition should have one. He disagreed and said it would lead to many unnecessary visits to the hospital!
I have periods where I have PACs (most of the time), periods when I have PVCs (less frequent) and periods when I have both. I feel that these periods lead into AF, but I am not 100% sure. The cardiologist was not concerned and said there is not necessarily any connection.
So, my journey towards treatment begins. Not to say there won't be a few more curveballs, but for now, i feel that we are on a road to somewhere at last.
