I was told a couple of weeks ago that the 3 day monitor I'd had fitted picked up AF, the consultant suggested I start warfarin but I didn't really want this. I have had palpitations for a very long time and it was only recently that an echocardiogram showed a slight leak in one of my valves and the fluid was hanging around my heart a bit longer than it should. I have had a few episodes of ? TIA's and am waiting to see the stroke doctor again.
I have chronically sick lungs with multiple problems with them so the last thing I need is a stroke.
Do most people with AF take warfarin?
