I have just been for a check up to see my EP and get results of echo cardiogram and 24 hour heart monitor as well as discuss my worry about the failed cryoablation last year which resulted in a blue light ambulance to St Thomas hospital after a pseudo aneurysm. The attacks I get now are not as severe as they used to be and revert with PIP in 2 hours.
He was very reassuring re my episodes of AF that I use PIP for and said that he felt continuing with PIP was best and that ablations are not a cure as successful ones will revert eventually even if it takes several years!! He would only recommend a further ablation if my episodes got worse or occurred more frequently. He has also suggested I stop rivaroxaban as weighing up the odds and my age and previous subarachnoid haemorrhage there was little benefit at the moment as the risks of a bleed balance out the risk of a stroke!! I just wonder what other people are advised????
