Hi. I’m new.
I’m 46 and was diagnosed with familial HCM (Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy) 6 years ago. Since then I had an ICD fitted 4 years ago, 4 stays in ICU over 4 years also. I have now been diagnosed with SVT and AF. I cannot take beta blockers as I’m a chronic asthmatic. Been advised that I will undergo ablation for the AF in October. I take numerous drugs plus they have just started me on Apixaban. My question is due to the other conditions as well as AF will this make ablation more risky? I have been told I will be having a GA. Thanks
