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

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

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

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

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 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 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.

Ablation

Ablation

My doctor has suggested to have the Ablation dkne, was told I would put to sleep because it is a long procedure. I read that you are given a IF and put under but you could be awake, I am confused. I would rather be put to sleep for the whole time

Which is the real procedure?
