You will be able to do anything. Since my ablation I have had no problems with afib. It has been seven months, I’ve been able to go off the meds, and have a link implanted in my chest to monitor the a fib. Don’t be afraid, it’s a really good thing

I'm a 67 year old woman and will be having an ablation soon. The surgeon I met with never mentioned implanting a "link." I don't even know what that is? Should I discuss this with him prior to the procedure? I DO worry about going off blood thinners in case my ablation doesn't hold. I am usually very symptomatic and know when I'm in AFIB, but while wearing an event monitor for 72 hours, I apparently had an episode that lasted 6 hours and I was totally unaware of it. HELP! (PLEASE)

Did you have an av node ablation which would require a pacemaker
