Hi all joined site a couple months ago. Wish I would have found it sooner. Can't tell you how much it has helped with info about everything related to AF. I'm 51 yr old male diagnosed with PAF last February. I've been on Metoprolol,Sotalol and am currently taking Multaq and Xarelto. All meds worked for a period of time but AF always got worse eventually. Now I'm getting bouts every other week lasting 4 - 6 days before going back into NSR for about the same time. Had been on the fence about getting ablation for quite a while. After reading posts and watching you tube videos about people's experiences with the procedure and the results I decided it was time to get done before ending up in permanent AF. Not to mention the prospect of getting off meds except for AC. Had a heart attack when I was 27 due to blood clot. Subsequently found out I have factor v leiden. Had been on aspirin until AF diagnosed then started AC. Like most people when first diagnosed I was very anxious, thinking I'm going to die and off to ER when it hit. Now able to ride it out and carry on for the most part knowing I'm anti-coagulated. Won't lie I'm still a little anxious about ablation even after all I've read but I trust my EP and we've always had a great relationship. Truly believe he's always had my best interest at heart. Just wanted to give as quick as possible background in case others out there like me. I'll let you know my experience with the procedure and the results soon. Thanks to everyone who contributes to this site it's been a godsend. Talk to you soon, Shaun.
