My wife’s afib was an electrical issue with the electric current on the outside of the heart. Her doctor liked to call himself an electrician. Her surgery was through her groin and they find the spot in the current around her heart where it is short circuiting and they zapped that spot to put her back in rhythm. She then received a pace maker. This was 15 to 20 years ago and ended many years of middle of the night ER trips and being on cumodin (rat poison) and the side effects of that drug!


I love the smell of burning spruce---I love the sound of a spring time goose---I love the feel of 40 below---from my trapline I will never go!

Ablation has taken care of it since the procedure 4 years ago now. BUT,Afib is caused by nerves around th valve. The ablation freezes those nerves and destroys their ability to effect the valve. Those nerves can grow back and if you live long enough your Afib can return.
Here's to an Afib free future for us folks who have it. Take care of your health!

Atrial flutter is where your heart beats regularly but faster than normal and is not as common as afib. Afib is irregular heartbeat. Both are caused by problems with the electrical signals in your heart. Afib has a higher rate of clot chances and a stroke. That's why I'm always on blood thinners.


Some mornings I wake up grouchy. Some mornings I let her sleep.

Do you take meds for your heart then?
I have the afib and high blood pressure. I take meds for the high BP and afib.


Only been on meds since this afib reared up last year. I'm not hypertensive and my weight is the same as high school = good.
Once this ablation does its job, I hope to get off all meds.

I take coumadin to help prevent blood clots and a stroke. What side effects did your wife experience from the coumadin? I haven't noticed any myself. There are other blood thinners out there, but none of them generic yet. The down side to most of them is that there isn't any anecdote for excessive bleeding. Whereas with coumadin vitamin K works.
