What Are The Risks Of Cardiac Ablation? For Those Who Have Had The Procedure, What Are Their Experiences After An Ablation?

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

Does Afib Continue After Having An Ablation?

Does Afib Continue After Having An Ablation?

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.

As mentioned above, blood thinners are to be taken, to avoid a clot/stroke.

When I had my ablation, I was told that it's not 100%, and many need to have a 2nd.

I am on flecaininde and metoprolol… read more

I'm Looking For Pacerone (amiodarone) Information From Other A Fib Patients.

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.

Thanks

I had an ablation last August 2021 and have had no issues. Maybe a little sore for a few days but that is about it. Good luck! Hope you feel better.

I’m Being Scheduled For A Biventricular Device Implant. What Can I Expect After The Procedure?

I’m Being Scheduled For A Biventricular Device Implant. What Can I Expect After The Procedure?

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 Having An Ablation On 5/31/18 And I’m A Bit Nervous About It. I Do Have A Great EP But I’m Still Worried. Should I Be Concerned?

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.
