I had an electro conversion at Christmas this year. Seems like I can't exercise without having irregular beats. I was in the hospital and in AFib for 4 days. I was exhausted and out of work for a month. Been back a couple of weeks, but seems like I'm having more issues, or maybe just hypersensitive, thinking "Here we go again." Does this seem normal to have more problems after a conversion than before? The cardiologist doesn't want to see me for another year, told me I could go right back to work (I could barely stand). I am having some more tests (CTA scan) to determine if I have any blockages so I can try the "pill in the pocket" strategy with Rhythmol when (yeah, I said "when" not "if.") I have another episode. I am hoping retirement will de-stress me enough that the arrythmias might not be a problem. Although my episodes have not been at work, there has been plenty of adrenaline related stress there. Do they use pacemakers for AFib? I've had several people ask me hasn't anyone suggested one.
