In January 2014 we posted Jon’s story (#68): Living with A-Fib for Twenty Years! For Former Pro Basketball Player, Medication and Proactive Perseverance Are Working. He was managing his A-Fib with a Pill-in-the-Pocket drug therapy.
Update May 2015: Jon writes that he may have had a mini-stroke (TIA). he describes how a dull headache grew into a sharp pounding. He began to see spots, and his field of vision narrowed to a small tunnel. During a meeting he stumbled midsentence to find the words and was unable to speak for ten seconds. His left arm was mildly weak.
Go straight to his update: Learn why he changed from a pill-in-the-pocket strategy and is now taking flecainide daily and is taking the novel anticoagulant Xarelto. Read more at the bottom of his story page.
