I have just seen the cardiologist last Thursday, after an ecg he now tells me that I am in permanent af as opposed to peroxisomal af. This he says is nothing unusual. However although I have checked myself out regularly and found myself to often be in af, I have not felt ill or could tell. He now recommends that I have the shock treatment to put my heart back into rythm. ( although I think he's already done that by telling me I'm in permanent af) An ablation he tells me is the last resort. Anyone else out there had the same experience?
