Hi guys, Saw cardiologist yesterday, 'flipped' out of sinus rhythm a month ago so she suggested another cardioversion, I am ok with that for the moment but am considering an ablation if the next cardioversion doesn't stay long. However, I wondered if anyone can recommend travel insurance. I got insurance a couple of months ago, no real problem as I was in sinus rhythm. I rang them today just to confirm the changes and to say I am on the list for a cardioversion. They offered to sort any claim out or refund my money!! As I hadn't booked anything yet the former was not a problem but I can't go on holiday uninsured. I asked them why they wouldn't insure me and they said that it is because I am 'unstable' and awaiting a procedure. I argued that I could just as well stay as I am because the meds are controlling the AF and if I wanted to I could stay like this for the rest of my life. It was just like pressing the 'repeat button'. He kept going on about my condition being unstable as I was awaiting a procedure. I rang a friend who I know has just come back from Greece, she has a holiday ap't there and flies often. She just said to me that she didn't have any insurance for that reason!! She is very brave but I don't think that I could do that. Anyway, I would be grateful for any companies that will insure in this circumstance. Thanks guys.
