Post ablation Early Recurrent AF

hi all,

I am 50 y/o female with AF since I was 40. It runs in my famility. I do not have structural heart problem. I was on Flec and Metro for 10 years till max dose and AF is out of control. Then I got Tikosyn max dose too. Tik cannot control my AF. My EP suggested to to ablation. I got ablation 5 days ago but I still have AF everyday post ablation, sometime bad ones and someitme light ones.I have it all day today but bad from 8 am to 1 pm. I have seen posts from you all mentioned that ablation works well for you. It seems like Tik and ablation do not do any good for me. Anyone has similar experience? 

Thank and gald to be in this support group,

    Good morning,

    I'm sorry that you're going through this and I hope that others on the support network will be able to share their experiences with you. I recommend raising any health concerns with your cardiac care team so they can help you figure out the best solution. I can also share some AFib resources to help you learn more. Keep us updated on how you're doing!

    lamanafibber, welcome to the group!  I'm glad to hear you are seeing an EP and have tried various options to deal with your AFib.  Do not give up on ablations!  Some folks here have had 2 or 3 ablations before reaching NSR.  There are also various types of ablations, and the field of how to deal with atrial fibrillation is growing all the time.  Self-education is important, and I'd recommend viewing the replays of the wonderful GetInRhythm conferences which Mellanie organizes (note that the 2018 conference is free to view; the 2020 virtual conference may still be in preparation -- I need to check).

    - Livestream replays from the 2019 conference (nominal charge to defray the cost): https://getinrhythm.com/  

    - Livestream replays from the 2018 conference (free, thanks to a sponsor): https://getinrhythm.com/2018-livestream-registration/

    If there is any likelihood that you may have sleep apnea, getting that treated BEFORE the ablation is highly recommended.

    What types of meds are you taking?   Please keep us posted!
