@sid1 that’s wonderful! I’m glad you were able to get the procedure done and are feeling well.

For me, I’ve haven’t had an episode of A-fib for almost 2 years. I recently got permission from my cardiologist to replace the Eliquis with 1 full strength aspirin a day. Of course, if my heart acts up again, I will have to restart the Eliquis.
I wear an Apple Watch. It has the ability to record EKGs. It also warns me if my rate is too slow. It’s a great “tool”.

Best of luck. Praying for your continued success.

Oh you are doing fine if you are not having to restrict your activities and best of luck. I didn’t restrict myself after the first one. I only started restricting when the next two happened due to intense physical activity. I hope and pray you don’t have another episode at all. Thank you for your wishes.

DURING MY OPEN HEART TO REMOVE A BEINGN TUMOR. I ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYTHING THEY COULD DO ABOUT MY AFIB. A DOCTOR VOLUNTEERED TO PERFORM A MAZE PROCEDURE. SINCE THEN I HAVE LITTLE TO NO AFIB. MY STAMINA WAS IMMEDIATELY BETTER; THE TUMOUR HAD BEEN INTERFERING WITH THE NORMAL BLOOD FLOW.
I RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT A MAZE CAN BE PERFORMED FROM OUTSIDE THE CHEST CAVITY. COMING UP ON 84
