Hello there.

So how is your heart doing after your second ablation? It's only a month ago, so there is plenty of time for improvement. Are you free of AF and SVT?


Amiodarone does not cause swelling as far as I am aware. I was on it for 6 months without problem but you should have regular medical checks on it.


Yes amiodarone can cause swelling problems with breathing, thyroid problems, you must be checked out for liver function and eyes when on amiodarone drug of last resort..See Stop Amiodarone.
