Hi all. This is my second post and as I received great advice from my previous questions I though I would ask for advice again.
I had a 'mild' heart attack fourteen years ago . I was fitted with a monitor for two weeks, had an Echo and stress test which showed no concerns and and was put on a Statin, BP tab and aspirin. No problems until two and a half years ago when I had my first (I think) AFib episode (heart racing/fluctuating for hours). I had further tests which resulted in me staying on the same meds as above. A couple of months ago I had a second AFib episode on my 70th birthday which resulted in me being put on Apixaban and I am now awaiting more tests as above. My question is, from what I have read I am confused whether my AFib is bound to become progressive, resulting in possible further drug treatment/ablation etc., or could I remain as I am i.e. on Apixaban for life and just getting on with it?
