My husband has persistent afib. He has had it for years, He is 74. He had several cardio versions which worked for a short time. About 4 weeks ago he had an ablation. He is still in afib and hasn’t been the same since. He has a cough and is extremely tired. He felt fine and was very active before the ablation. He chose to have the ablation because he said he wanted to be normal.
The ablation is very invasive and for him it was difficult.
