Helen, an active and energetic 78-year old woman from Canada, shares her recent afib ablation experience. She takes us through the beginning of her afib journey, through her ablation, and then through her 3-month recovery period. She shares a great deal of information that many afibbers will certainly learn from and find useful. If you are older than 70 and have atrial fibrillation and are considering an ablation you’ll definitely want to read her inspirational story!
I had my annual checkup with my local EP on Wednesday, March 23rd so I thought I would publish an update to let everyone know how I’m doing 4 1/2 years after my successful afib ablation. I’ll give you a hint. The appointment couldn’t have been any better!
Chiropractic treatment for Afib? While you wouldn’t typically think of seeing a chiropractor for a heart condition, the holistic approach that chiropractic takes can help address some of the underlying causes of AFib. Here are some of the ways that chiropractic treatment can help.
On March 5th of this year I celebrated four years of afib freedom! It’s been wonderful. In this post I talk about how my ablation four years ago has given me my life back. I also discuss the challenges I continue to have with afib today despite not having had an episode in over four years.
The answer to this isn’t as cut and dry as you would think. The best NOAC, or blood thinner, is the one that is best for your unique health condition and situation. For some, Xarelto will work best. For others, Eliquis will be the best choice. And still others will do best on warfarin (or for whatever reason warfarin may be the only option). There was a study published in November 2017, however, that demonstrated Eliquis as being the best NOAC for non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
