I had an ablation back in December, which wasn't successful. Within a couple of days my heart hate was up to 130BPM.
Cut a long story short, I was given bisoprolol which made no difference.
Following an ECG and echo cardiogram, I was prescribed Amiodarone alongside bisoprolol. This made me feel really ill a couple of days in. Was told I still needed to take one a day.
Have felt rough ever since. Best way I can describe it is "slightly hung over". Things that I normally do are much harder, long walks with the dog, swimming etc. I have always been fit and active. Heart rate is now around 45 BMP.
In February I was due to have a cardioversion, but they didn't do this as my heart was in sinus rhythm when I went in.
Wednesday this week, I had a clinic appointment and they told me the scans I had in December showed my left side of heart was only working at 20%. Apparently this is heart failure but no one told me this until now. Not in the slightest bit impressed.
Meds have been changed now, but I recall being told (back in December) if that your heart is in abnormal rhythm when they do the scans (it was), it can show up things that are not there and that I shouldn't worry if it does.
So, has anyone been in this situation?
I'm stressed and worried and grateful for any advice anyone can offer.
