well,its been a year and a bit now,and the ablation I had for paroxsysmal atrial fibrillation and flutter has been completely cured first time! I have a new lease of life,i am 70% as fit as I was beforew having it done,but no longer cycle race as I just could not get to that level of fitness at my age again (53) but can run a couple of miles,cycle 40 miles and do any gym class and activity as before,in other words im fitter that the average guy! I owe all this to the consultant,and his fantastic team,ok...its no bed of roses having an ablation,but without it I would have had a life on anti arythmic drugs,which I just did not want! if you are worrying about having an ablation please don't,as it really works.it does take a year to recover to ultimate fitness,but its well well worth it, I owe them everything...many thanks.
