You should read through some of the experiences on this board.  Some good, some bad.  If my afib went away spontaneously, I would be relunctant to have an ablation.  My last 2 episodes went on until I was electrocardioverted.  However, I have been out of Afib for 1-1/2 years on Norpace XR.  I was told by 2 doctors that there are some revolutionary new techniques being developed that will be available in the next year or two.  If I can, I'm waiting.  It's a very personal decision, depending on your condition, your outlook at medical intervention.  Good luck to you, keeping you in my thoughts.
