I am writing as the carer for my wife, she is 74 years old and had no history of heart problems until three months ago when she complained of a chest infection and finished up in ICU. The diagnosis was Atrial Fibrillation a new world for us. Now she is on medication which is being reviewed bi weekly, she suffers a lot from sporadic cramp in left leg, low blood pressure and shortage of breath. The cardiologist and her doctor recommended cardioversion but she is reluctant to have it having seen too much television. Any comments please.
For myself I am a member of the esophagus community having had Ivor Lewis 6 years ago.
