Post ablation, my heart maintained NSR for just over two weeks, but has been romping along at a steady 100 for 15 days; in spite of the daily addition of 2x100 mg fleccainide to the 1.25 bisoprolol, I was already taking.
My BP machine is not registering irregular beats, just fast. As mentioned in an earlier post, the flec has made no difference.
The hospital asked my GP to send in a series of ECGs but most of these were poor quality so they've called me in tomorrow. My EP is on leave but, previously mentioned the possibility of cardioversion if my heart wasn't back in NSR after 2 weeks.
I'm worried that the longer this continues the more established the rogue signals will become. Would this be the case if the flec is creating the perfect conditions to keep the arrhythmia going?
The arrhythmia nurses have organised the ECG and will arrange for someone to review the results tomorrow, I think.
Any suggestions for key questions to ask would be much appreciated.
Am I likely to have to wait a long time for cardiovesion on the NHS?
We were hoping to leave for Scotland this weekend; I'm guessing I'll need to alter our plans if my heart doesn't settle soon.
