    They will get you sorted.

    I,am in a different case from you.

    I got my bb because of a heart attack.

    The next day after I got a stent put into my heart.

    I got home.

    With in 5 hours of being out of hospital my heart started to race for no reason

    So I ended up at accident and emergency department

    They gave me bb to slow my heart.

    Been told I'll be on them for the rest of my life now to stop my heart going into over drive

    Hello Lynn - When you say they are going to operate - what operation would that be?  If you have A Fib, then perhaps you mean an ablation.  They should be able to tell from your ECG what kind of arrhythmia you have - AFib being the commonest.  Don't worry - loads of us have AFib here and with the proper medication, we are all still around, it is not life threatening if treated.
