Afib: 5-cardioversions, stent, balloon angioplasty, cath exploratory

Posted by @twptrustrek, Jan 2, 2016

I have had 5-cardioversions, one stent, one balioon angioplasty and an cath exploratory.
I am 74 and was 2-1/2 yrs a-fib free.
on news year eve I went into a-fib anew !!
I hang in between 59 and 85 variations my BP is 108/79 and steady..
I was in synus rythm for 3 hrs and then back into a-fib.
My cardiologist will see me on the 14th.

Is it likely that I will go back into rythm (my beats hold at a 72 level for 10-15 beats before moving.

Hi @twptrustrek
Sorry to hear you experienced a-fib after not having any symptoms for 2.5 years.

Did you see this video where a patient shares his experience living with atrial fibrillation? http://www.mayoclinic.org/living-with-atrial-fibrillation-video/vid-20138776

Are you worried about having to wait until the 14th to see your cardiologist? How do you manage your symptoms until you see him/her?
