still in A-Fib

Well I was the hospital for A-Fib....22 days ago.
Went yesterday for the dr to do cardio conversion but my blood was too thick
I will double up on Coumdin until Monday...go for blood test....
This is getting to be very stressful

I take "cardio conversion" to be a electro-cardioversion (electric shock) or medication, which?

The electro cardioversion is usually effective if there are no complications.

The shock does a stop/restart of the heart, I believe, and that makes a clot possible, thus the blood thinner (anticoagulant) is necessary for safety.
