Having drunk about 2-4 standard drinks most nights pre AF, post ablation the thought of "never drinking again" is depressing, as fine wine was an institution me and my partner really enjoyed.
I am as much dismayed for my partner as myself that this mutual joy has ben taken from us both.
Yes, for me alcohol was a big trigger for AF
But.... I cannot get any reliable information on whether it would be reasonable to occasionally enjoy 1-2 glasses post ablation.
I hope I can go to 1-2 glasses once a week, about a 90% reduction from my pre ablation habits!
But first 2 times I have tried that 3 months post my seemingly successful ablation I have gone into mild concern, hence a anxious each time I consider trying a glass of wine. last night I had 1 hr mild AF signs which freaked me out.
Could anyone please post their experiences with occasionally enjoying a drink post ablation without effect (if alcohol was in fact a trigger for you).
I know I'm only 3 months post ablation, but the thought of never drinking again is depressing!
Would appreciate peoples experiences that are at last 6 months to 1 year post successful ablation.
