I’ve got an appointment next week with my cardio and plan to talk about an ablation with him. I’ve had afib for a year (6 episodes so far and they are horrible). I thought it was all related to alcohol but the latest episode last week it wasn’t involved as I’ve been teetotal for a few months. I did take ibuprofen and had too much salt during the day as well as a Zantac just after dinner and then a short time later afib struck. Took a flecainide tablet (100mg) about 1.5 hours after eating, but it didn’t work. I took another about 12 hours later and again it didn’t work so went to a&e and eventually got reverted back. I’ve also had palpitations off and on for around 35 years. I’m 65 now
I’m now researching as much as I can so that I have as much information on it. Could those who have had an ablation let me know if you feel if it has been succcesful. Is it classed as a cure please? I find this site absolutely invaluable so thank you very much.
