This site has always been about my experiences with Atrial Fibrillation as a Rider/Racer. I had Catheter Ablation done in August 2009 and,except for the occasional blip, remained pretty much in NSR until January of 2018. This is when I had my second ablation done.Then I had a third one done in July 2018. And a 4th touch-up ablation in July 2019.
So now it will be about my recovery and return to full-on cycling again. You will also be entertained buy my occasional rants on daily life.....Enjoy.

So it's been a week since I left the hospital and I amin rhythm about as much as I am out of rhythm. the longest I have gone in NSR so far is 28 hours. The shortest period of time it has taken me convert back to NSR is about 10 hours. So one migh argue that the Ticosyn is working, moderately at least. But quite frankly I'm really starting to get frustrated.
The other issue is when I am out of rhythm I take 75mg of metoprplol which really nocks me down. The 50mg I take daily nock's the snot out of me as it is. The whole thing has becom quite debilitating and depressing. It completely limits my activity and keeps me from doing th things I enjoy.
