I have had atrial fib for 20 years. The first 10 were quite difficult with periodic episodes and two hospitalizations. I was on metapropol and flecanaide, and aspirin at the time.
Finally, I had an ablation and was symptom free for over 9 years. Unfortunately, my ablation has failed now and I am back to having symptoms and on blood thinners ( Eloquis) and metoprolol. I recently saw a electrphysiologist who told me that it’s much harder to do an ablation years later after the first one failed and would only have 50/50 odds. I would like to know how I can find more information about research into ablation after it has failed years later. Also, if anyone has had a second ablation years later and where they went and what their results were.
