AFib caught by event monitor

Oct 07, 2011 - 0 comments

Just saw the cardiologist on 10-6-11 and got an event monitor to wear for 30 days when I got AFib the next day! Being it was a Friday I didn't hear back from my cardiologist until Monday (did hear from another doctor within an hr tho) who told me to start Flecainide 100mg twice daily on top of the Verapramil that he gave me instead of the Metoprolol I had been on. And I don't have to wear the monitor any more. I could keep it to catch any more events, but that shouldn't happen. I am keeping for now. I have no more hard palps now! The only time I have any feeling in my chest is when I lay down to sleep! Hopefully it lasts for awhile because my doctor said that when this fails, I will have an ablation.
