It may sound like a silly question but I’ve always argued against having an ablation as my quality of life is fairly good in my opinion.
I am on medication but it doesn’t give me any negative effects. I still exercise but differently to pre AF. My home and work life are good. I’ve recently turned 49 years old (a youngster I know) and have two young boys and a loving wife.
However when I queried having an ablation with the EP and subsequent arrhythmia nurses, my quality of life arguments were not really taken into consideration. For them it just seemed to be wrong to want to continue with an AF heart and on meds when they could offer a chance of getting it “fixed”. I think they see quality of life as being off meds and not being at the risk of stroke
As it turned out I went along with the experts decision and I am due to have the procedure in one weeks time.
I just hope it turns out to be the right decision
