Just wondering if anyone can give me pros and cons of an ablation. I noted in some posts that most are happy with the outcome of the procedure, but I'm scared. Has anyone died from having this procedure or had permanent disabilities? Since I have sleep apnea they want to use general anesthesia. This scares me also. Any advice? I have afib off and on all the time and the EP thinks I will need to have the procedure done relatively soon so that my atria does not change size from too much afib. Then the procedure will not be possible.
