About Me: Female, Ann Arbor, MI, member since Jan 2011
I have had AFib since 2003. Episodes are becoming more frequent. Would like feedback on treatments that have worked for others, since there are as many theories as there are doctors, it seems. Interests are reading, writing mystery fiction, singing, drawing, life!
Just a quick note to say hi! Thinking of you and wondering how you are doing?? I miss reading and responding to these posts. Sometimes it feels like life gets away from us...I'm hitting 10 months today and it feels good. Our vacation to the beach was amazing and I'm looking forward to more of those.
An aide car raced by me on the freeway the other day and I felt like I had PTSD over my afib experiences. I was remembering all the times I was in that aide car, rushing to the hospital. It's easy to forget how difficult life was until I'm reminded all too vividly.
I hope they have made some solid plans for you. I want you to be well and experience the freedom of life without afib. Please write and let me know how you are.
Hugs and best thoughts,
I know you are trying to decide about the different types of ablation...so many on here rave about Dr. Sirak and his mini-maze. With my PVI ablation I had to have a 2nd "touch up" but that did the trick, no more afib. I think it's great you're getting another opinion from Cleveland Clinic. Best to you, Delta in whatever you decide!
Just a quick note to say hi! I just read your May 15, note. I get good readings within a three/four seconds on my Oximeter. As I mentioned in one of my posts the heart beat indicator is rather unsettled looking. I have seen the Oximeter lose it, and just start over. I suspect high heart rates many not be properly displayed. I haven't read the specifications on my unit, it may have a "speed limit" : )
I responded. I wish you much strength and love as you sort this all out.
I am pulling for you to get through this healed. I am always here if you
just want to talk through stuff. I don't know much about afib but I am
a good shoulder. Love Michelle
