Diagnosed with PSVT in 2020. AFIB diagnosis Jan 2021. Flecainide and Eliquis since Jan 2021. 2022 brings a whole new round of problems. Finished most recent hospitalization for AFIB and SVTs...heart rate over 200.. liked to did me in. Had cardioversion and was successful. Totally worthless since August 19th..required care at home for basic needs. Today's visit with electrophysiologist gave me two options: need a ablation for the afib and also one to fix this strange svt that appears to be… read more
Has anyone experienced this trauma after ABLATION? I did, and went thru a very devastating
Ordeal at hospital to correct this? Hoping to never experience this again! Any body else?
I am scheduled for an @ablation soon. I've had no arrhythmia since taking medications (@xarelto and sotalol). I was hospitalized twice last fall, one with cardiac inversion. I've had two cardiac inversions. One over 20 years ago and the one last fall. I've experienced palpitations for many years but the heart has always corrected itself except for the three times I was in hospital through emergency. In the last 3 years I have been plagued with an continuous low frequency drone caused by… read more
I have Afib and had an ablation in 2018. I had a heart attack also in 2017 and had a stent put in and a pacemaker. I am wondering what I should do for the continued episodes of Afib I still have. I called my heart doctor and he says there isn't much else that can be done. I am just curious if others have had this happen and have any advice for slowing these heart palpitations that happen at least once a day and can last for a couple of hours.
I have been on bisoprolol and diltiazem for awhile, but am looking at starting amiodarone (pacerone) instead of the bisoprolol. I would love to hear from others about the Pacerone.
I have had AFib for 10 years and had 2 cardioversions that didn’t work long term. I also have sleep apnea and use a CPAP machine. The “electrician doc” diagnosed cardiomyopathy with an injection fraction of 35. While I play golf or go to the gym 6 days a week, my endurance is compromised. He claims with the biventricular device, my endurance will significantly improve. If anyone has experienced the implant of the biventricular device, please offer your experience.
I’m 66yr old male with A-fib was diagnosed 2/16 I’ve had four cardio versions that didn’t work. Was on a couple of different meds that didn’t work. Amiodarone did work for the A-fib but put me into hyperthyroidism and the A-fib retuned. So now my EP is doing the abalition. I don’t like the idea of messing with my heart.
