@ltssjs, I might have asked you the same question about your question. Who do you think has the responsibility for considering ablation and Watchman — and for whom? In my experience, cardiology practices consider every option before homing in on those that should be helpful to a patient whose diagnosis is well advanced. Against that background, I answered your question in what I think of as the real world. If you wanted Connect members to "consider" ablation and Watchman, many of us do — including me, but in partnership with my medical team, we have set those options aside. Members and mentors on Connect — even our Moderators — are not here to recommend treatments for medical problems. That responsibility lies with the patient and the medical team that has been given the role of diagnosing and treating an illness. Martin
