Afib ablation

The link device went in 6 months after I had the ablation. I was allowed to go off Xareto because I had only one minor Afib incident during the six months following the ablation. They implanted the link to track any afib that might occur, should it be a silent or realized episode. The link is a safeguard as I hated the side effects I had from Xarelto.

Hi Sal70……..so the link is something they place ONLY if you have another AFIB episode after an ablation? What is the plan if this device records MORE episodes? I'm sorry if that sounds negative, I'm just very frightened. I am on Xarelto, as you were, and I'm wondering what your side effects were. I hope your ablation is a total success! Thanks so much for your time.
