Although the rate was reduced from what was a 120-180 bpm, the episodes started in
earnest. I was placed on plendil and atenelol, in
additon to digoxin
. From what happened to be a mild AF, albeit some very strong episodes, I was in almost constant AF.
This constancy became debilitating. Although I understand, at a lay level, that graduated AF at low levels of heart rate is better than the intense high rate, I have begun to be not happy with that approach to ablation.
