The nightmare continues. ?I have been diagnosed with AF after a routine Old Guy checkup revealed a lumpy pulse. Three weeks later I am on Rivaroxaban 20mg/per day and Bisoprolol 5 mg per day.
I was then sent for an Echocardiogram and got a letter in the post saying that I had a severely dilated left Atrium and a left ventricle with some wall abnormalities. No specifics or details of the measurements.
I retired the next day and have cut two stone in weight from 135 kg to 123 kg in the past three weeks and my BP is down from 176/95 to 112/73.
My pulse was 55 before all this started but now is average at 85 now. (high 139 while exercising, low 73 while sitting.)
I received a letter informing me that i will undergo Cardioversion in January,
i am having a severe lack of information coming to me from my medics other than them saying it was ok for us to travel to India as we had planned as long as we stayed on the meds.
Does the Atrium return to normal given time or is that something I will have to deal with.?
What are the implications of a 'severely dilated left atrium and a left ventricle with some wall abnormalities;?
I read the forum about three hours per day trying to get the info that the quacks don;t seem to share with me.
Thanks for your patience for this patient.
