A-FIB PATIENTS’ BEST ADVICE
From Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure, Chapter 12: Your Journey to a Cure. Advice from patients now free from the burden of Atrial Fibrillation:
Sheri Weber, Boyce, Virginia, had to get angry:
“While in the hospital, I questioned my cardio doctor about treatment options other than medication; He told me there were surgical procedures, but they had very low success rates (WRONG!). Anger and determination led me to research my options [right then] on my laptop.” (pp. 106-109)
Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, talks about all the false info he got from doctors:
“Don’t believe your GP. I have gotten a lot of bad advice from various GPs:
− ‘Just take a little digoxin and you will be fine.’
− ‘You are probably missing some micronutrient. If you buy this product I sell, it may well provide that and stop your A-Fib.’
− ‘I think that all of these tests your EP is requesting are just a waste of money.’
− (From a cardiologist) ‘Don’t worry about a little A-Fib. It won’t kill you.’ ” (pp. 152-162)
Joan Schneider, Ann Arbor, MI, found online information and support:
“Upon questioning [my new EP]…I didn’t have a warm fuzzy feeling. However, I found everything I needed to know (and even what I didn’t want to know) when I came across A-Fib.com, Stopafib.org, and the best support from the A-Fib support group.
It was a true experience of input, input, input!” (pp 119-124)
