Afib Ablation Update

Afib Update

My Atrial fibrillation seems to be slowly fading away.

I had my ablation on 2/18/2010 and my one year anniversary is behind me.  I do not know if the heart damage – the burning – from the ablation took longer to heal or maybe my heart is now “re-modeling”  back to a more stable state.

I feel much better and I hope I do not have to get ablation number 2 for a while.  I am still on Multaq and Coumadin as a precaution but I hope to wean off the meds later this year.

My immediate goal is to lose some weight – a LOT of weight and hope that will improve the situation overall.

Multaq has some issues it seems with possible liver damage although this has not been proven yet.  I give God all the credit for my improvement.

It seems “I” am most likely the main cause for my Atrial Fibrillation onslaught and I am living proof that if changes are made you can beat this disorder…

If you have Afib – get it treated and make the changes you know you need to in your lifestyle to make it stay away.

Just Do It:

1.  Get your heart rate under control.Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure: Written in everyday language for patients with Atrial Fibrillation

2.  Get your blood pressure down to the normal range – now 120/80 or less.

3.  If you have sleep apnea get it fixed – use a CPAP machine if you need to.

4.  If the meds don’t get your heart back to a normal rhythm – get an ablation.

5.  Lose weight! – It will help with all your symptoms.

NEVER give up…  Atrial fibrillation can be treated – and cured!
