The first cardioversion lasted apx 3 yrs, the second one, about 2 yrs, the third one did not work, so the doctors tried medication, which worked after trying a number of combinations, and several days in the hospital to monitor the outcome. Yes, I had an EP doctor with many years experience, during each procedure. I have been in sinus rhythm since late April, and hoping that it will continue.

May 30, 2017 · Should I consider ablation? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Hello, I am an 80 year old female with A-fib, I have had several cardioversions and one ablation, which works for a few years and/or a few days or months. I am getting prepared for a cryoablation next month, and I am having second thoughts about this procedure. My meds are 150 Flecainide bid, Metoprol 25 mg bid, Warfarin 5 mg, once daily, Memantine 10 mg once daily, Verapramil 3xdaily , Timilol once daily, Methocarbanol (I am not sure of all the spelling of all these miracle drugs.) My cardioligist said it was a “quality of life issue”. What are the pros and cons of my situation? Thank you for any information that you can offer.
