Here’s another awesome success story about someone who received ablation and has essentially been cured from a-fib and all of its associated complications. Check out the video below.
Note that, as with many of these other success stories, how the ablation surgery has allowed Melissa Finney to live a full, normal life once more. Medication had not been particularly helpful to her before the doctors tried ablation.
Ablation isn’t 100%, but I’ve been finding more and more stories just like this. It’s got a really high success rate. Of course, the type of ablation that you choose may also be an important factor. That could depend on your comfort level with each procedure, your doctor’s comfort level, and the procedures that are readily available at your local hospital.
But it seems like I’m finding success stories for just about every conceivable type of ablation procedure out there today.
Sometimes ablation lives by the adage “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Because sometimes a second ablation takes care of the procedure even if the first ablation doesn’t.
Surgery has risks, but if it means getting rid of a-fib those risks are looking more and more as if they are worth the rewards. Especially if it means avoiding a lifetime of medication dependence.
What are your thoughts on ablation surgery? Have you had it before? Are you growing more interested in it as you start to hear and see all of these success stories?
