I am a 68 yr. old woman who started with heart problems about 7 yrs. ago. I have had numerous catherizations and stents and, finally CABG X 6 almost 5 years ago. I have done well over the last 5 yrs with few problems. However, this week I ended up in the hospital with an episode of A-fib and was told this could become chronic. Has anyone had any experiences with A-fib? The meds I am on should have prevented this from happening and there is nothing I did to bring this on. It just happened and was very scary. I will see my regular cardiologist this week and hope to get some answers but I am curious as to others experiences with this. I hate to have to go on additional meds.
