    Hi Popeye, It's good that you have proof of your condition. Hope that you get an ablation. I went to cardiologist yesterday, went back into AF after 7 months cardioversion so put my name down for another cv soon. I may consider and ablation if that fails. I have put a new post on this site but while I am replying to you Popeye I wondered if anyone has a travel insurance company to recommend. Because I am awaiting a procedure they say I am 'unstable' and wont' insure me. Anyone else had problems? I would be grateful for any help as I do want to go away. Well, Popeye, l hope that you feel better soon, I felt great for the last 7 months being back in 'normal' rhythm, just like my old self and I want to feel that way again. I am sure once you get on the list it won't be long. Keep in touch. Cheers.

      Cheers Popeye, I have had some good replies but the general opinion seems to be, leave the 'waiting for a procedure' out!! What gets me is that you see folk at the airport about 30 stone, smoking outside the buiding, eating big macs and generally looking like they haven't walked 100 yards in their lives!! They wont' ever have been to the docs for a check up and look like 'time bombs waiting to go off'!! Good luck on the 18th, keep smiling!!
