THE TOP 10 LIST #7

Persevere-Try More Than One Treatment if Necessary

A-FIB PATIENTS’ BEST ADVICE

From Beat Your A-Fib: The Essential Guide to Finding Your Cure, Chapter 12: Your Journey to a Cure. These patients needed more than one type of treatment to become free from the burden of Atrial Fibrillation:

Joan S.

Joan Schneider, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, tells about starting with drug therapy:

“The Pill-in-the-Pocket (PIP) [drug therapy] served me well prior to my [catheter ablation] procedure.” (pp. 119-124)

Jay Teresi, Atlanta, GA, describes his second ablation after being A-Fib free for three-years:

Jay T.

Jay T.

“[My EP] explained that my first procedure was a success. However, during the healing process a tiny spot did not scar and this allowed the A-Fib to trip again. He ablated that portion and touched up all the other areas. I have now been free of A-Fib for over four years (as of September, 2011).” (pp. 98-100)

Harry Emmett Finch, Malibu, CA. With 40-years of A-Fib, Emmett’s treatment evolved beyond drug therapy to his PV catheter ablation, then AV Node ablation with Pacemaker and, most recently, installation of the Watchman device:

Emmett F.

Emmett F.

“There is more help available today than when I first developed my A-Fib [in 1972], and I’m sure more treatment options (like the Watchman device) will be available in the future.” (pp 181-189)

A-Fib is Not a One-size-fits-all Disease

Your Atrial Fibrillation is unique to you. Along with various treatments, you may need to address concurrent medical conditions (i.e, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, sleep apnea). Likewise, you may need to make lifestyle changes (e.g., diet, exercise, caffeine, alcohol, smoking).

In addition, your heart is a resilient muscle that tends to heal itself, so you may need repeated procedures.

Try More Than One Treatment if Necessary.
