      coach, gallon of water will ruin your kidneys.  I cannot stop this water retention, yes I exercise and yes I have ballooned this year since "they" decided I have AF and not SVT. I have my feet up at home ALL the time and I constantly move my toes and ankles. Good Luck

      Hi Popeye, Lankylass here, I'm with you on the cider!! I am just waiting for an echocardiagram prior to another cardioversion. The first echocardiagram showed a little leakage on the valve, not sure exactly what that means but don't think it is serious and quite a few people have it, most without even knowing!! I am going on hol to Greece on Sunday, cardio said it would be ok so off I go. Hope you feel a bit better, speak to you soon.
