Hello, Since Oct 10, 2016 and after being released from hospital, Dr. told me another ablation would likely not address my AFIB and put my on Norpace. I take 2 150 mg in morning and 2 150 at night. My heart beat is regular and my BP is good. However I have ever present bloating, gas and big time constipation. I also seemed to have less energy but that may be due to my heart condition. Anyone taking Norpace and are you having similar issues. Is there another drug I could take.

If you are not feeling better 6 months after surgery something is not right. Where did you have your surgery?

I agree with @cynaburst. I would call Mayo in Minnesota and see if one of the cardiac team members can review your records.
The number there is (507) 284-2511. Any of the staff will give you the information where your records can be mailed or faxed for another opinion. I do hope you get answers. Please keep us updated xx
