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:

Daniel D.

Daniel D.

Daniel Doane, Sonora, California, USA, A-Fib free after Totally Thoracoscopic (TT) Mini-Maze surgery:

“I didn’t realize how continued A-Fib so drastically remodels your heart. ‘A-FIB BEGETS A-FIB’ was the phrase that brought it home to me.
Every instance of A-Fib changed my heart, remodeled the substrate, and made it more likely to happen again. Get your A-Fib taken care of. It won’t go away. It may seem to get better, but it will return. (pp. 152-162)
Roger M.

Roger M.

Roger Meyer, Columbus, Ohio, from three generations of A-Fib, had the Cox-Maze surgery:

“I can now say, first hand, that there ARE bad effects from A-Fib and especially from A-Fib that is not treated early. I now wish I had had some of the today’s more aggressive A-Fib treatment options which weren’t available to me in my younger years.
My best advice: Don’t let A-Fib wreak its havoc untreated!” (pp. 110-115)
Joan S.

Joan S.

Joan Schneider, Ann Arbor, MI, from Pill-in-the-Pocket therapy to A-Fib free after catheter ablation:

“My advice to other AF patients: Know that paroxysmal AF becomes chronic. Drugs only work for so long. Heart modification will occur, and options will become few. Get with a great EP  and/or AF clinic and find your cure.” (pp. 119-124)

Leaving Patients in A-Fib Overworks the Heart, Leads to Remodeling and Fibrosis

Don’t just manage your A-Fib with medication. Seek your Cure.

Controlling symptoms with drugs, but leaving patients in A-Fib, overworks the heart, leads to fibrosis and and increases the risk of stroke. Fibrosis makes the heart stiff, less flexible and weak, reduces pumping efficiency and leads to other heart problems. The abnormal rhythm in your atria causes electrical changes and enlarges your atria (called remodeling).

A-Fib begets A-Fib. Your A-Fib episodes become more frequent and longer, often leading to continuous (Chronic) A-Fib. (However, some people never progress to more serious A-Fib stages.)

Don’t Delay—Seek Your A-Fib Cure.
