... Has any had any experience with cardioconversion for chronic A-Fib? I am due to have one in three weeks and wondered if it works successfully and how you felt afterward. I am nervous about it. (6 replies)
... I had it done a week ago and it went great. I was nervous the couple of days before but was okay on the day of the procedure. This is how it went: First an iv. I took off my upper clothes and put on a gown but left my pants on. Then oxygen in the nose and a sticky pad put on the chest and on the back. Rolled into a small room, went to sleep and then woke up. They had to... (6 replies)
... Mel, I did have the cardioversion yesterday and all went well. You were right, it was over before I knew it. I have had a couple of what feels like palpitations since, and I am worried that I will go back into AFib. This is a constant fear at this point. Otherwise, I feel well and it is great to walk upstairs without getting winded. I only hope it lasts for a while. (6 replies)

... Hi Narda99....you are right...sometime it does not work and they may want to do an abulation. I have not had that done so I can't comment on that. They did talk about doing that if the cardioversion did not work. As I say, the cardioversiion is a piece of cake. I was really afraid to have it done because it just sounds so awful but the nurses and anistiologist was so... (6 replies)
... Thanks, Mel, for the information. I understand that it does not always work, especially if one has been in AFib for a long period of time. I was diagnosed one month ago. (6 replies)
... A cardioversion is not the same as abulation. Cardio version is when they shock your heart back into rythem. You are asleep during the whole thing and is nothing to worry about. It works in most of the cases and there sre no afte effects. I recommend it 100%. I had a cardioversion done in August and am fine niow. It was over before I knew it. It is only the anticipation...

... When your body is not handling Insulin effectively, your metabolism is messed up, and causes all kinds of grief. To me, this is your #1 health problem, and the rest of your health problems are worsened because of the Diabetes Type II. Diabetes is a nasty, insidious disease. That is quite a nasty, but probably necessary (at this time), cocktail of chemicals, all of... (6 replies)

... My cardiologist has discussed cardioconversion with me, but says I have to be on the warfarin for a month before it can be done. I will probably go for it, as I find this is uncomfortable to live with. ... (6 replies)
... Thank you for explaining it a bit better to me. Yes, it was "cardioconversion" that they did on my dad. Since leaving the hospital, he has been on coumadin and lasix. And no, he does not have a rapid heartbeat. And although he's had an irregular heartbeat for years, it has always responded well to medication until the past few months. He is not on any of that type of... (13 replies)
