Is An Ablation A Good Idea?

Is An Ablation A Good Idea?

I had a quadruple bypass 3 years ago this month and generally have been okay (ish)
Just before Xmas I had an episode of AF, another one on New Years day and then another mid February.
I have seen an "Irregular Heartbeat" Doctor who has put me on a waiting list for an Ablation which I expect to be done sometime in June /July.

PCSK9 Drugs, Repatha/Praluent

Hi,
I have been taking the new class of pcsk9 drugs for over a year now, along with a statin, and over the past 9-10 months have experienced chronic tingling in my fingers, reduced circulation in my fingers and feet, and a degree of chronic numbness in the bottom front of my feet, including some of my toes. Anyone else on these drugs and experiencing the same symptoms? If so, what have you done?
