Another newbie from downunder!
Hi there, I have been lurking in the shadows here since my hubby Graham had a dual chamber pacemaker fitted in early March to see if it would provide G with some relief from A.Fib. Unfortunately it has not. His cardio in conjuction with the E.P. thought the next course of action should be an A.V. Node ablation. Neither of us were that keen On this route but if it meant better quality of life for G we would go with it. We have just received a letter from the Hosp where the A.V.Node ablation would take place and it seems they have changed there minds and want to replace the pace maker with an ICD.
We no nothing much about ICDs except from what I have gleaned here. Has any one here had the AV Node ablation - how are they feeling now - is their A.Fib contolled?
Has any one had and ICD.fitted and does that control the A.FIB.
We would be very grateful for your coments. Thanks.
