DCCV

iam 69 and  diganosed with AFIB about 6 weeks ago and had a DCCV about 3 weeks ago and came back into normal rythum for about two week but then went out 3 days ago

My normal specialist is on holidays and i say his colleague yesterday thinking they would do another DCCV but he just wants to leave me in AFIB and treat me with Metoprol 50mg per day and rvvaroxaban20mg PD 

my query is is the best outcome or should i have a second DCCV ie is it safe to that

    Apparently electrical re-starts of hearts are regarded as normal and safe.

    Rogs2309, I agree with Outsmartit,  but if the next Cardioversion (DCCV) doesn't keep you in NSR, I hope you'll  consider ablation(s), done by an EP who does a lot of them successfully. Keep us posted!
