Hi everyone

So glad I stumbled across this site with so many helpful people sharing their experiences

A little about me. I'm 72, live in Australia, and was diagnosed with paroxysmal AF in April 2016. On 14 May 2018 went into persistent AF as well as Atrial flutter, so decided, with the advice of my EP to have an ablation. This happened on 19th June 2018, and apart from a few issues (which I will discuss in future posts) all seems well.

I would add that in in 1996 I had Mitral Valve repair done, and in February 2015 had a pacemaker inserted for sick sinus syndrome.

My current medication is Nebivolol 5mg, Eliquis 2x5mg, Micardis 80mg and Indapamide 1.5mg

Look forward to learning, and helping people on here
