Hello...

You will need to provide a little more information for anyone to suggest any type of opinion.

What is your history in regard to Afib? Is it lone, paroxysmal, chronic? Are you currently taking any type of medication? Your age? Past medical history etc.

Sorry to have questions for your questions...

If you were diagonosed with a-fib and a-flutter, why did they only do the flutter ablation. For 5 years I too had a-fb and a-flutter.  I had my ablation for both the fib and flutter in January 07. Soon it will be my one year anniversary and so far I have had no fib or flutter.
