A-Fib Patient Story #61

After Years in A-Fib, New Energy and Improved Life

By Jim McGauley, 2012

I underwent a heart ablation in the summer of 2009 to correct an atrial fibrillation condition that was detected several years earlier but was not controlled effectively via drug therapy. The procedure was performed without complications by Dr. Saumil Oza and his team at St. Vincent’s Medical Center [Bridgeport, CT], and after a brief period of recuperation I resumed normal activity.

Within a matter of days, I realized that “normal” had a new meaning. I had lived with the atrial fibrillation for years, and it took the ablation and resulting corrected heart rhythm to bring about a marked surge in my energy level with less fatigue and an overall sense of “fitness.” I have always maintained an active lifestyle, but post-ablation I was able to increase significantly my exercise regimen. I now run 2-3 miles three times a week and include modest weight training to keep my upper body toned.

I was struck by the professionalism of Dr. Oza and the ablation team, and the coordination between his team and my cardiologist Dr. Steven Nauman at St. Vincent’s. The ablation itself is minimally invasive considering that it is correcting an abnormality inside the heart itself, and the recovery period was brief and generally comfortable. I would readily recommend it, along with Dr. Oza and his team, to anyone qualifying as a candidate to correct atrial fibrillation.

I found out more information by visiting http://www.MyFastHeartbeatJax.com [site is published by Biosense Webster Inc.] and calling St. Vincent’s Medical Hospital at 1(888) 418-4754.
