Very Active 54-Year Old Rejects Drug Therapy; Becomes His Own Patient Advocate

Jill and Tony Hall, Evansville, IN personal story

Jill and Tony Hall, Evansville, IN

Tony Hall writes about how he learned he had A-Fib: “I went from joking with the techs to disbelief and immense concern on my part. I could see in their faces this was not a mere hiccup in the testing, but something far different. I sat there for probably 40 minutes waiting for my A-Fib to convert back to normal sinus rhythm, but it would not.

As we drive away and I sit in the passenger seat feeling like a pet heading to a kennel. Suddenly things are different. I no longer have that “healthy as a horse” attitude.

Jill and I read as much as we could on the internet about this condition I have now called Atrial Fibrillation. “Who gets this and why?”  “What are your treatment options?” “What are the potential side effects of the meds I am taking?” The internet is a good thing and a bad thing. Plenty of information. But what is true and what is simply opinion, or false???”
