Hi all, it’s been a while.
Feeling a bit, ok, lot down today as my AF has really progressed.
Diagnosed 4 years ago I’ve had more AF attacks than hot dinners. Again I must thank every one for their support on here. You’ve been amazing.
Anyway from last Christmas to August 2018 I didn’t have a single attack but made a deal with my cardiologist that if it happened again I’d go for the ablation, which I am.
On 17th August (I think) I had a two week attack, reverting back to sinus after taking slightly over 10mg of Bisoprolol. Stayed in sinus for one week. Flipped back into AF again about six weeks ago and it won’t budge.
I’m 51 and going shopping or climbing the stairs is killing me. Do others find it that bad at times?
Going to the Chest Pain clinic tomorrow then another Echo next week. The docs won’t cardiovert as my average heart rate is under 110bpm.
I’ve been told I’ve got 1st degree heart block and left ventricular hypotrophy. I now need to consider my work life. I’m in sales and been off for the last two weeks since attending hospital with chest pains and having a ghastly virus which I’m sure hasn’t helped.
Re pushing yourself, how do others find knowing when to stop and what damage could I do if I work full time whilst in AF?
One customer and I feel like I’ve run a marathon? Any thoughts gratefully received. I will of course be speaking with the docs tomorrow but wondered what you’re thoughts were on here.
Anyway thanks again
