    I had ablation last year but they couldn't get my heart to go into tachycardia so it was unsuccessful, I hope yours will be okay but I got my hopes up about mine and know the disappointment when it doesn't work.

    I'm on 10mg of bisoprolol and 100mg flecanide now and won't be attempting the ablation again

    My AF was found around 3 years ago when I went for a minor op, doc said not worth ablating as probably had it for awhile, put me straight on warfarin. Then 15 months ago I had open heart surgery for a valve repair and at the same time I had the 'maze' procedure which would hopefully put my heart back into proper rhythm.  Wore a monitor for a week Feb this year and had results last week - gave me an ECG then told me apparently my AF had gone while wearing monitor but was now back again!!!!!!  Go figure !!  Luckily I wasn't expecting it to have worked so it wasn't too much of a disappointment, warfarin has no side effects for me and my doctor's surgery has a clinic so I just have to go once every few weeks now it's settled.  If I  were you I would def go to your doc and tell him about breathlessness and pains - just not worth risking it.  Hopefully all will be ok and I wish you well for your ablation when you have it done.
