Well as a coincidence my cardiologist rang me with my test results yesterday he told me this “
Echo scan: excellent pumping chambers , no signs of any damage or heart disease, left atrium has reduced in size but still is enlarged, slight mild leakage is still there from the mitral valve but valve has no sign of disease so he isn’t worried about it as it’s very common and if he pulled 100 people out of a crowd 70 would have it and not no about it .
Stress test : we had your heart rate up to 157 for 10 minuets and could not induce anything, no AF no SVT , seen a few skips on stoping the test as your heart rate dropped down went very well and reassuring.
48 hour ecg: all in sinus no sight of AF or SVT some ectopic beats 3 in a row but others would not have felt them but you are super sensitive to them so this reading is very reassuring to.
He also said he was ok with stopping my blockers now if I felt ready , it’s day 2 off them and considering I stoped from 10mg strait off before my ablation procedure and had a ruff 2 days I am feeling just as bad as that today from stopping 2.5 😩 shaking like a leaf and feel out of it and very spaced out 👀🙀 I see my EP next week and we will talk about everything and the warfarin. I will continue with warfarin for the next few months as I need to see how I go off these blockers first . I want that cover there in case I do go back into AF . I asked about my left atrium as this was a big concern of mine and he told me it was severely enlarged before my ablation procedure but has decreased in size and not to worry about it as it may not go completely back to normal 😔 but he has said he will keep an eye on me and can still have scans to check as he knows about my brothers death .
So anyway I am having some little palpitations today and feel quite shaky and just like crap but will ride it out 💪🏽 this is probably going to be the test of all tests now but we will see how it pans out 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼❤️
