Hi All - I write here for my mother who is 92 yrs old and has had afib for over 30 yrs now. Lately she is having more episodes that last longer periods of time. We saw her cardio/EP today and her heart is beating too fast. She has a pace maker that keeps her heart from going below 60 beats a minute. She is on metoprolol, Lasix, levoxythyroxin, magnesium and Eliquis.
Since the afib seems to have stepped up a bit, he is recommending an ablation of the circuit board of the heart. Has anyone ever had an ablation at this age and how did it go??
