I have had AF plus some tachy for 18 years and have had 5 ablations in Bristol. The first one did help, but the others have done little, in fact, almost made it worse. I saw the cardiologist last week and he did offer to do another, but said the chances of success were not very good and really I do not believe it can work for me any more. I have been listed for pace and ablate which I have tried so hard to avoid. Episodes are coming every two or three weeks now and are pretty bad. I have tried everything I can, with diet, relaxation and all the rest, but it will not improve. I feel very low today, I don't want a pacemaker, but feel I am up against the wall.
