The words sound daunting. I am having a heart ablation on July 7.
The bad is the procedure itself, risk of stroke, will still have a-fib some while the heart heals and will have to continue blood thinner for a few months after.
The good is a-fib will be cured and I can get off blood thinner eventually and off beta blocker which I take now. I also discovered my doctor is one of the best in the world.
My a-fib episodes have been more frequent. Having a-fib is awful, so I am willing to do this. I have had it for a few years. At first, it was several times a year, then moved to every 6 weeks, then every month and now, every few weeks, two or three.
I am at peace with it, but prayers are welcomed.
