  • Anniversary 9 Years Now AFIB

    Hello everyone. I have not been here for a long time. Wanted to say hello to everyone. April was my 9th anniversary for my onx valve. I am now in full blown afib though, and I hate it. Heart rate runs up to 124-127 most times. I have been in hospital and administered Tikosyn but it kept P wave open, so they just sent me home on Amiodorone and and I had horrible side effects, I could not breath and felt like lungs had fluid in them, so in and out of ER last two weeks. Went to see a doctor who put me on those drugs yesterday and now she wants to put me on Sotolol because I was going to try the Multaq but way to expensive. So back in the hospital again to try the Sotolol and she says I may or may not need cardioversion while I'm there. Don't really know how long I've been in afib, because I see I posted a while back about my heart rate. Doc says if you have been in it for a while I may have to have ablation or pacemaker. Anyway glad to see some familiar folks here and wish you all the best.
    Blake

        Blake, how have you been doing? I know that afib with a prosthetic valve is no joke. Have they gotten it under control?
