Hi all, just a quick update. I had a Cryoablation on 7th September 2018 for lone paroxysmal AF, this was my first procedure after being on meds for 5 years which started to fail. The first couple of months after the ablation were up and down, I had a lot of palpatations and ectopics rather than AF. After about 3 months those symptoms started to settle and each week has got steadily better from then on.
Now at 5 months most days are symptom free, some days I will get a hand full of palpatations or a wriggly worm sensation in my heart for a few seconds but that's about it, nothing on the scale of pre ablation levels I am pleased to say which would regularly keep me awake all night. I have continued with a healthy lifestyle and zero triggers like alcohol ect in the hope this will extend my run of good health. This week was a test as I had the flu so I've been off work with high temp and lack of sleep ect but the old ticker has sailed through so no complaints. I wanted to post this update for those who are not having a good time and maybe contemplating ablation, there is hope and I have come from a very dark place to being healthy again so fingers crossed for you should you take this path. Best wishes Dave.
