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!
Paul is a regular reader of my blog and recently reached out to me. He wanted to share his afib story with my readers. This is his story written in his own words. I thank him for sharing his experience with us and I congratulate him on having the courage to have an ablation to end his afib. I wish him many years of NSR!
This story is sure to inspire. Ilona is a 45-year-old woman from New York City. She battled paroxysmal afib for 2 1/2 years despite being on drugs to manage it. She decided to have an ablation. In this post she writes about her experience.
Editor’s Note: Robert was the original owner of this blog. He sold this site to me in 2013.

A Little Background I was diagnosed with afib in 2008. I was given a prescription (Cardizem CD), advised to take a baby aspirin, and […]
This picture was taken of me and my dad in November 2014 – just a couple days before I left to meet with Dr. Natale for my initial consultation for my ablation. He looked pretty good in this picture but I had no idea how sick he really was. He would be admitted to the ICU on Saturday morning, June 27, 2015, and would die the following Sunday evening. He would have total right side heart failure, liver failure, kidney […]
