This first days went better than expected. They are running a bunch of tests and will then try a cardioversion.

They now think that I might have had a silent heart attach since Last month. I hope they are wrong.

I am sorry to hear the AFib is back. There are several options for you to try. Were you on an anti-arrhythmic med like Amiodarone? I don't know if your Drs. have done an ablation. My husband kept going into AFib despite many cardio versions as well as the drug therapy and finally had the AV node ablation and a pacemaker. He feels much better. A friend had the electrophysiologist find a pathway that when abated stopped her AFib. She did not need to have the AV node ablation nor need a pacemaker. Don't be discouraged yet. It is a slow process to find the best treatment sometimes. Thanks for keeping us posted and praying for you.
