Hello there, my wife has a/f and her body doesn’t tolerate it too good as she gets short of breath on exertion and stairs can be an issue, she is 50 years of age.
She had a successful cardioversion 10 months ago which lasted for approx 7 months in which time she felt fantastic, she went in for a second cardioversion last week but after 3 shocks it failed and they sent her back home.
We went to see the cardiologist this week and he has suggested maybe 1 more try at cardioversion and if that still doesn’t work maybe ablation or just to live with a/f.
Just wondered what peoples thoughts were on failed cardioversions and ablation, she is scared to death of hospitals and the thought of ablation sends her into panic mode.
Any thoughts or advice anyone can give us would be amazing.
Thanks in advance.
UPDATE :- my wife’s medications are rivaroxaban, bisoprolol, amiodarone, furosemide and amlodipine
