Symptomatic after pacemaker implant and A-Node Ablation
Does anyone have chronic a-fib after a pacemaker implant and A-VNode ablation? The ablation caused me to have chronic a-fib which means I'm in A-Fib all the time. I had my procedure in July of last yr and am very symptomac. I feel the fluttering, fatigue, and short of breath. My lungs are clear. I also have edema. My drs. are puzzled by the edema and shortness of breath. Meds do not totally help. Does anyone have chronic A-Fib? If so, does it bother you and if "yes", what do you do for it?
